In the meantime, I received a little affiliate bonus again and I want to give away a beautiful book to someone: Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening. The book is illustrated by the fantastic Susan Jeffers... who breathes life into the delightful Robert Frost poem.
I chose this book for a couple reasons:
1- It's the thick of winter right now... let's enjoy the wonderful titles celebrating that...
2- This book is a perfect example of the importance in savoring the words on a page and letting them hang suspended in the air for a bit before turning the page.
3- I love books that are able to serve in making poetry very easy and accessible to children. Using picture books is a great way to acclimate young ones to the study of, but more importantly, the enjoyment of poetry.
So there's that. I'll pick a winner this Friday in some random but unscientific way. To enter, just comment please with whatever it is you'd like to say... :-)
