A Powerful Book of Short Poems, Deep and Long in Meaning Oct. 28 2012
By Sanford Fraser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A Powerful Book of Short Poems, Deep and Long in Meaning

With this book of poems inspired by his Special Ed students, Charles Bernstein
not only uncovers the cruelty, but also the poetry in their lives, which can
find light in the darkest places: "The sun never comes to the residents /of the
old-age home, except as reflected through the eyes of my kids." Heroes And Saints
Often it is a student's own words that turns the literal into the figurative. To describe
the jacks he has thrown spinning on the floor, Jason says: "Look at the ballerinas/
dancing on their tiptoes" Pea-Brain....In brief, a powerful and exciting book of short
poems, deep and long in meaning.

Beautiful book! Highly recommended! Feb. 23 2012
By Anonymous - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was so moved by this poignant book, that I read it in one sitting. I encourage everyone to glimpse a world that many know very little about.

Alice Walker loved the book too! She wrote, "Above all it is art turned to us through the eyes of love." Check out her full review above in the book description.

An amazing collection May 1 2012
By FS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a book of poetry. More so, however, is that it is a collection of stories by students in a special education classroom. These stories are transcribed as poetry; which on their own take you to another world. Some of the poems had me crying.
