    Those are really creative books. I love the story of snow. One that isn’t on the list but just came out that I am totally in love with is ‘Suzie Bitner Was Afraid of the Drain’ – which is technically categorized as fiction, but I’ve heard the author speak, and I think the book is more creative non fiction. It is a hilarious collection of children’s poetry that has some very poignant poems in it as well, but a lot of them are creative plays on events that really happened to the author. The book winds up blending fiction and nonfiction in a really unique way — and its set up so that the first poem invites you in and the last is like a metaphor for her remembering all of these things that happened in her childhood. My favorite is about the girl who turns into a sandwich — and there is one about having worms for pets and one about winter. It’s actually really amazing. And SO FUN to hear her talk about it because she’s really animated. —

    I definitely agree with Ashley on Suzie Bitner Was Afraid of the Drain. Such a fun book… and so easy to relate to in so many ways. Personally, the poems that really hit home for me are those about being the eldest and about sharing a room with a messy sibling. (Was the author in my room when I was a child?!?) The poems really capture the feelings of childhood.
