Verse is Diverse

Posted: February 25, 2021

By: Tom Malinowski, Middle School Librarian

Books in verse
have rhythm, rhyme, beats.
They hum and drum like other books, but
strike a different chord among the heartstrings.
Although quicker to read,
they reach and curl into your brain distinctively.
Some with no words
inspire and invoke creativity from the reader.
No matter your mood,
books in verse
challenge and change perceptions of what a book should be.
Any book is for all.

‘Ohana Means Family

Long Way Down

One Last Word

Gone Fishing

Out of the Dust

They Call Me Güero
