Wonderful artwork to go along with poems, kids will enjoy creating their own! My favorites were The World Without Me, Flyswatter, and Thunderstorm.

Now post it online and ruin other people's day the same way yours has been ruined.)

(Another project! I'm trying to read all the picture books and graphic novels on the kids section of NPR's Books We Love 2022.)
