For those who like to be in on the newest news, you should check out the book trailer for a brand new poetry collection. Hidden parks and irrepressible dandelions put down tap roots and grow up wild in Sarah Grace Tuttle‘s Hidden City: Poems of Urban Wildlife, Eerdmans Books for Young Readers, 2018. Amy Schimler-Safford’s art highlights nature’s amazing adaptation to cities, from falcons nesting on the thirty-second floor to fairy rings of mushrooms and pigeon courtship dances. Their sunflower buffet feeds my hungry soul.
Notes: This is part of my new Book by the Brook micro review series. I hope you’re enjoying it as much as I enjoyed reading Sarah’s delightful feast of words: Aster. Sorrel. Nectar. Bagels. Fish heads. Broccoli. Ladybugs. Moss.
Writing Tip: The right words in the right order. Good writing is as simple as that. And if you are working on a collection of kid’s poetry and have questions, Sarah was kind enough to answer some questions of mine. Maybe she answered one of yours.
