Vernon Is On His Way (Poetry)

Ages: 6 and upPublisher: Lee & Low Books


In a book filled with poems about the love of words, books, family members and nature, the poet encourages children to interact with all, sharing her enthusiasm in playful poems.

The teaming of author Pat Mora with illustrator Raul Colon is inspired. His generally curved characters read, hug, sing and fish for stars in a bright yellow palette, while the poet encourages, “Be a reader. Explore galore.”
