Praise For World Make Way: New Poems Inspired by Art from The Metropolitan Museum…
"The book’s true spotlight is on diversity—in the background of the poets, the style of the artworks, and the method of interpretation chosen by each poet . . . The poems emphasize that in art and poetry there is no right answer, rather a myriad of different interpretations. Accordingly, there is something for every young reader in this delightful collection."
"The specially commissioned poems, which easily lend themselves to reading aloud, are well matched with their individual artwork and can be excellent springboards for further discussion about the picture."
