You remember school love notes in February.
Folded pieces of paper passed fast in the hall to you & notes someone else found tucked into the math book.
Maybe put there by you.
Arnold Adoff & Lisa Desimini remember those days. They team up for the best book of sweet poems on the school love topic. Isbn 0.590.48478.8 It’s all here. The shyness, the frustration & the puppy love. It includes mom & dad & the teacher & the whole family. Plus the kid across the aisle
Lisa brings each poem to the page visually in tender & inventive ways. Arnold Adoff deftly gifts us with the words that say I hope you never find out this red heart is from me. I think you will oooh & aaah through this book.
I especially like the chalkboard rimmed with the alphabet page & the dad on the sofa page. Enjoy!
