Some Favourite Books

A progress report. Yes, I’ve managed to make lots of time for reading since coming home from Banff.  I’m trying to find as many books written in free verse as I can, and I’ve found some wonderful ones.

Here’s a list of a few favourites:
Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse (a heartbreaker)
Heartbeat by Sharon Creech
Crazy Man by Pamela Porter
Bronx Masquerade by Nikki Grimes
The Brimstone Journals by Ron Koertge
Libertad by Alma Fullerton
One of Those Hideous Books Where the Mother Dies by Sonya Sones
Street Love by Walter D. Myers
Love, Ghosts and Facial Hair by Steven Herrick
Happy reading to you!
And my thanks to the student at Caledonia Junior High who recommended Walter D. Myers to me.
