Summary: A book of poetry for girls.

Strengths: The author writes a detailed note in the front of the book about the poems written in the book. She tells readers they should jot notes down in a journal everyday even if it is only three sentences and they do not mean anything. The poems were fun and great for girls.

Concerns: The book is specifically geared towards girls. This is a serious problem because a lot of times it is hard to find books and especially poetry that will interest young boys.

Classroom Use: This book could be used in a lesson about poetry. It can be a book in a group of examples of poetry. It would be a great book to recommeng to girls that are really interested in poetry. This could be a book teachers use to motivate those girls to continue reading poetry and maybe even writing poetry.
