This wonderful collection reminds us to be thankful every day for all the little things we take for granted.
“Thanku: Poems of Gratitude” is a wonderful collection of poems edited by Miranda Paul, written by a WIDE variety of poets (many of whom I recognized), and illustrated by Marlena Myles. I love collections like this. There’s a stunning variety of subjects people are thankful for and an incredible variety of poetry forms (I think there’s a different form on every page!).
I think I’ve said this almost every day so far this month, but … yet again, I had a hard time choosing just ONE poem to share. I had many favorite poems (and many favorite poets) that I really wanted to share. But in the end, I chose the one that I loved the most. This is a gem that shines in a mine of gems though.
And if you’re looking for more poetry fun this month, be sure to check out the Kidlitosphere Event Roundup!
