Amazing Places

By Randomly Reading

This is one of my favorite kid's poetry books from last year.  It is a collection of 11 original poems, each one is about an American landmark, not all of which will be familiar to kids, but all of which tell something about this country.  And that's one of the beauties of these poems.  They introduce young readers different places of America through poetry and maybe instill a desire to visit some of them.  For older readers, such as myself, they will touch our memories.
