Treasure-hunt PoemsBook - 2008
THE GLEAM OF A GOLD NUGGET...the fire in a precious gem...the geometry of a seashell...a fossil, a baseball card. Treasures all.
John Frank's poetry about the things we collect - at the beach, in the attic, in the mountains and desert, at flea markets - is a treasure itself. With handsome alluring photographs of collections and collectibles, this is a rare find - a keeper - to read and rediscover again and again."Keepers" is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
