I'll use so many of the poems here to inspire and to emulate the young readers and writers in my classroom. Alberto Forcada's short poem, "Sailor", could start a thousand other great poems by my students:
"Mother,Do you know?/My calling to the sea came/When you sang me to sleep."
I look forward to sharing this excellent (and beautifully illustrated) book with my students and colleagues.
