Vance’s book doesn’t startle or leap into directions hitherto unknown, but it does make for some good comfort poems. For folks that would like a little more poetry in their life.

ELIZABETH RAMSEY BIRD Apr 11, 2013

A collection of 124 poems, Barbara Vance explores the ephemera of childhood. Some poems take on the realistic problems lots of kids face. Things like “My Brother’s Bike” or “Bored” or (maybe just a little less common) “Worms for Pets”. Other poems stray into the fantastical, like “Pantry Party”, “A Ghost Who Loves Movies”, and “Don’t Make the Tooth Fairy Angry.” Each poem is couched on pure white space with small interstitial illustrations to accompany. The book also includes an index of the poems, both by title and by first line.
