Daniel Finds a Poem by Micha Archer
This ode to the power of poetry is a sensory delight.
Readers follow Daniel throughout the week as he seeks to find the answer to his query, "What is poetry?"
His daily excursions to the park provide him with a variety of answers.
Archer's evocative text and richly colored collages combine to create an awe-inspiring exploration of the wonders of his world.
I love this line:
"Oh, poetry! Poetry is bright stars
in the branches, moonlight on the grass,
and silent wings to take me wherever I go."
Thank you Nancy Paulsen Books for sharing insights into her creation process.
