This Is Just to Say: Poems of Apology and Forgiveness by Joyce Sidman, Pamela Zagarenski

When Mrs. Merz asks her sixth grade class to write poems of apology, they end up liking their poems so much that they decide to put them into a book. Not only that, but they get the people to whom they apologized to write poems back. This poetry collection covers an array of highly relatable topics, from first love, absent parents, and sibling spats to missing hamsters, stolen doughnuts, and dodgeball. A great way to jump-start poetry lessons. Collage illustrations add a touch of whimsy.
