Summary:
The words can come from a memory, or a dream, or something I see or hear or wonder about or imagine. Maybe there's a place where words live, where our minds and hearts can go and find them when we want to write or read. I like to imagine that there is such a place. I call it "The Land of Words." In this collection of twenty-one poems, National Council of Teachers of English Excellence in Poetry for Children Award winner Eloise Greenfield journeys to a place where words, creativity, and imagination abound. Featuring the poems "In the Land of Words, " "Books, " and "Poem, " as well as favorites such as "Nathaniel's Rap" and "Way Down in the Music, " this tribute to the written word invites readers to look within themselves and discover what inspires them.
