BookSpeak!: Poems about Books by Laura Purdie Salas

A collection of wacky, whimsical poems about books and all the treasures they contain. Laura Purdie Salas, the acclaimed author of Stampede!, is back with another collection of wild and weird, wacky and winsome poems about all the magic to be found on a single bookshelf. In BookSpeak!, each poem gives voice to a group that seldom gets a voice . . . the books themselves! Characters plead for sequels, book jackets strut their stuff, and we get a sneak peek at the raucous parties in the aisles when all the lights go out at the bookstore!Illustrator Josée Bisaillon’s mixture of collage, drawings, and digital montage presents page after page of richly colored spreads filled with action and charm. Together, Salas and Bisaillon deliver a unique collection brimming with ideas as much about spines and dust jackets as they are about adventure and imagination.

BookSpeak!: Poems About Books

Poetry as a medium for popular reading has made a comeback in the last few years, thanks in no small part to the growth of Instagram and social media. Platforms have allowed independent creators to share their voices in new, novel ways and have reached new readers. Though this uptick in poetry consumption has been most obvious in adult readers, teen readers have been—and continue to be! Rather, these are strict collections of poetry, written by a single writer or a group of writers teaming up for an anthology. It also includes books not published specifically for teen readers in the YA category, but with tremendous appeal to teen readers.

Whenever I come across a great new picture book poetry collection, it takes me no time at all to think of all sorts of possible lesson ideas for the small people I hang out with everyday. A book filled with poems about books? Yes please! It is loaded with read-aloud possibility. It would be a wonderful book to integrate into library welcome tours in September. Some of the subjects for the poems include: the sadness of an unread book, cliffhangers, falling asleep while reading, book plates, conflict, and what happens when the lights go out at the bookstore which we already know about, thanks to this.
