A New School Year: Poem Stories in Six Voices by Sally Derby -- ADVISABLE

Derby, Sally A New School Year: Poem Stories in Six Voices, illustrated by Mika Song. POETRY. Charlesbridge Publishing, 2017. $16.99. Content: G.

Six different kids, six different first days of school, six different grade levels (K-5). These 24 first-person poems address first-day jitters, getting ready for school, the day itself, and after the fact.

This is a relatable collection of short poetry that could be shared as an entire volume, or as selections of single poems.
