I have a really complicated relationship with poetry, although I did nominate the new Judith Viorst book, What are you glad about? What are you mad about? I truly believe Viorst to be the most underrated poet of our time, but that's a conversation for another day. I am bowing to the greater wisdom of Check it Out for Jone's poetry recommendations. Hop over to her blog to get all the scoop on poetry, including the recommendations listed below!
Because this blog is aimed at librarians and patrons of school libraries, I will not review books that are published solely in e-book formats or that are self published. Books should be available in hardcover or library binding through library suppliers such as Baker and Taylor or Follett. Books should fall within the target demographics of this blog.
