1. That sounds like a delightful book. I have to confess that I have a hard time getting into poetry (or maybe my problem is taking the time to read it since it isn’t read straight through like a novel), but learning back story is a great way to get and keep me interested.

  2. I’ll have to get this one back out of the library. I read it awhile ago but “David” is working on memorizing Stopping by Woods so this would be a good one to read. I remember liking it a lot but I think for me the reason it didn’t make my own shortlist was that I felt the way the story is told from the daughter made it slightly more fictionalized. It’s been awhile though so I might be remembering wrong. Also, there were just so many excellent picture book biographies that I think it was harder for any of them to stand out.
