TRY THIS AT HOME. Poems to inspire young readers.

From Eileen Spinelli’s many goodbyes to summer at the shore, to Avis Harley’s catalog of ways to say hello across the globe, to a close look at the birds and animals outside Valiska Gregory’s window in winter…Georgia Heard has collected list poems from contemporary poets. Each list is gathered with a poet’s eye – carefully selected details beautifully presented – so that readers see the extraordinary in the ordinary. And so readers are encouraged to be writers. The simplicity of each poem and Georgia Heard’s introduction will inspire young poets to write their own.
