Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poem in Your Pocket for Young Poets gives readers one hundred poems to read, be inspired by, and share with family and friends. 

Published in association with the Academy of American Poets, this book is presented in an innovative format and includes one hundred poems cleverly organized by theme (food, feelings, play, animals, and more). The collection contains classic children's poems by Emily Dickenson and many others, as well as poems by today's most popular poets, from poet laureate Kay Ryan to Naomi Shihab Nye. Foster the love of poetry during National Poetry Month, on Poem in Your Pocket Day, or in the classroom any day of the school year.

Look for the Poem in Your Pocket for Young Poets edition with perforated pages (978-0-8109-9142-2) so kids can rip out and carry the poems with them or share them with friends.

There's also a version with perforated pages available for adults titled Poem in Your Pocket: 200 Poems to Read and Carry

Review:

"This robust collection of poems (which follows a 2009 title published for adults) is designed, not unlike a page-a-day calendar, for readers to rip out the poems (each of which get their own page) along a perforated edge to be stuffed into a pocket, taped on a wall, or given to a friend. The selections are divided thematically; Lisa Jarnot's 'They Loved Paperclips' inaugurates works about everyday things, and 'How Poetry Comes to Me' by Gary Snyder frontlines a section of poems that explore the creative process. Navasky chooses a diverse range of works, and the format encourages integrating poetry into everyday life. Ages 12 — up. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
