This book, a Caldecott Honor book, is a biography about a man and his journey in becoming a poet.

I personally would use this in an older age group, because it is a complex and uninteresting book for children in lower elementary.

Now when he wrote poems, he felt as free as the Passaic River as it rushed to the falls. Willie's notebooks filled up, one after another.

This is a Caldecott honor award book. It is about a poet and his journey to being able to make a living while continuing his passion. It‘s interesting to think how he‘s famous for poetry but was a medical doctor in his life career. The pictures compliment the story of William really well.

The pages and illustrations in this story were really creative! They reminded me of vision boards or collages.
