A poetry book that celebrates reading.

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2011-04-11) Very Good Permalink

A poetry book that celebrates reading. Multiple authors share their love of books and reading. At the end there is a little bit about each author. Fun way to start your library lessons at the beginning of the year.
