Researching material for my segment on Good Morning Connecticut in June, I discovered a book of poems called Toasting Marshmallows by Kristine O’Connell.  The first poem, in the shape of a tent, entitled “Tent”  sets the tone  of the book.

The language is photographic.  The reader can “see”  the author’s intent. I particularly like the description of the family dog.  At home, he has “tennis ball” dreams.  Camping, Scooter becomes “Timber Wolf.”

This is a book kids, parents, and teachers will love.
