Outside the Box: A Book of Poems (Hardcover)
Virgie's Staff Pick (April 2014): Check out this new poetry book for kids: Karma Wilson’s collection of more than 100 poems are humorous, anything-can-happen, and “outside the box.” I especially enjoyed the illustrations, and the creative way he uses his words on a page.
“I have a little brother,
and I’m not a fool.
I know why it’s warmer
in the kiddie pool.”
