Reviews and ramblings about children's and young adult literature by an absentminded middle school librarian. I keep my blog to remember what I've read and to celebrate the wonderful world of children's and young adult literature.

Waiting on Wednesday - National Geographic Book of Nature Poetry: 200 Poems With Photographs That Float, Zoom, and Bloom! by J. Patrick Lewis
WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share the titles of books whose release we are eagerly anticipating.
National Geographic Book of Nature Poetry: 200 Poems With Photographs That Float, Zoom, and Bloom! Edited
J. Patrick Lewis. 192 p. National Geographic Society, October, 15, 2015. 9781426320941.
When words in verse are paired with the awesomeness of nature, something magical happens! Beloved former U.S. Poet Laureate J. Patrick Lewis curates an exhuberant poetic celebration of the natural world in this stellar collection of nature poems. From trickling streams to deafening thrunderstorms to soaring mountains, discover majestic photography perfectly paired with contemporary (such as Billy Collins), classics (such as Robert Frost), and never-before-published works.
I really enjoyed his earlier compilation for Nat. Geo., Book of Animal Poetry from 2012.
