"Kids and poetry belong together!! Both play, and for children, the logic of life is still poetic rather than rational, as it is for adults. Teacher, parents, grandparents: everyone loves sharing poems with children. The book will be sophisticated and visually stunning as all of Di Giacomo's books are, which positions this as a title for Museum stores and the gift market as well as for the educational market. Gift market: parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles: what better gift in our media-saturated world than a gorgeous book about a poet who chose ALIVENESS over just living life. With blurbs promised from some big names, this book might just be a breakout in the world of illustrated nonfiction, though books in this category are already doing very, very well. "
