This is a wonderful book! The book is written in free verse and is on a notebook of a boy named Jack, who thinks that males could not and should not write poetry. He starts off reluctant to the idea of writing poetry, but sure enough, he begins to open up and thrive. The author uses repetition to emphasize certain thoughts or ideas.This adds a unique touch to the poem. Jack's childlike personality is portrayed when he writes a letter to his favorite poet. He shows fear that the Poet will not read his work.
Sharon Creech did an amazing job at capturing this boy's attitude! This would be an incredible book to read to my students before starting a poem unit. I believe by reading it, my students will feel at ease to write about what they see and how they feel.
