Book Review: Pablo Neruda Poet of the People
on April 23, 2011
Every since reading The Dreamer by Pamela Munoz Ryan, I have been trying to figure out how to ladder it for certain students. With this book, I have found the perfect introduction. Brown does a fabulous job of summarizing Neruda's life into 32 pages and still manage to touch on important facts and themes. The text is enhanced by Paschkis' illustrations in wonderful earth tones and with words in English & Spanish woven into the design. I read the book through once and then returned to just admire and analyze the pictures. Definitely a must have for any collection on poets, especially Neruda. Additionally the students and teachers I have shared this book with have certainly reacted as I hoped.
