Product Details

Praise

The subtitle will have librarians, teachers, and reading specialists reaching for this book…While the students’ letters reveal how deeply books and poetry affect the lives of young readers, the volume is probably most likely to find a home with educators and adults with a passion for books and reading. Earnest and often revealing.
—Kirkus Reviews

This well-crafted collection offers excellent examples for student writers and could easily be incorporated into lessons as a mentor text. Creative writing teachers may want to consider for classroom use.
—School Library Journal

These letters evoke the sense of discovery and inspiration that young readers feel about writers who have made a special connection with them through their work.
—Dayton Daily News

A wise pick for educational settings, particularly those who participate in Letters about Literature or other similar programs.
—Booklist
