"Packed with intensity . . . kids and adults exchange the words that convey grief, delight, love and acceptance of themselves and others."&nbsp -Kirkus Reviews When Mrs. Merz asks her sixth grade class to write poems of apology, they end up liking their poems so much that they decide to put them&nbspinto a book. Not only that, but they get the people to whom they apologized to write poems back.

A great way to jump-start poetry lessons. Collage illustrations add a touch of whimsy.
