NPM 2020 Day 18: I am Someone Else

Here is yet another collection of picture book poetry collected by Lee Bennett Hopkins’.

1-Someone Else COVER“I am Someone Else: Poems About Pretending” is an excellent collection of poetry.  I have friends who wrote poems that made it into this book and I was hoping to share one of their’s.  I was also wanting to share the mermaid poem (because hello? mermaid fanatic!), but no.  The poem I have to share is one written by Lois Lowry.  YES!  THAT Lois Lowry!  Did you know she wrote poetry?  I didn’t either!

“Big Problems” had me laughing out loud.  Not only because I come from a family of tall people and could relate, but also because I was trying to imagine what kiddo is pretending to be a giant’s wife?  It’s hilarious!  I HAD to share it here:
