" I can't believe I missed one of these Jeannette Winter bios! " said.

" I have been reading through a number of Jeanette Winter's books recently. She does a nice job in a picture book introducing young readers to famous authors, artists, etc. In this one, she uses Dickinson's poems to tell her story in a way. " said.

" Picture Book Title #10The beginning has a great, child-relatable way of telling how Dickinson's poems came to be. It also has great facts about the poet at the end, and it could be paired nicely with the other Dickinson picture book. It has nice illustrations of her poems, but I think a lot of them would go over a child's head. As an adult, I loved this book. " said.

" The first words are, "She died." There is an illustration of people carrying a casket, then Emily's sister crying by a tombstone that says Emily Dickinson on it. "My sister died today." Not a great start to a children's book. It starts this way, because Emily's sister goes through Emily's things and finds her poems after her death. The rest of the book is a nice selection of the poems with illustrations. " said.

" An interesting perspective on Emily Dickenson's life and poetry. Book starts out with Author's death and then her sister finds her poetry, and lets the poems explain her life.I didn't find the fact that she started with her death offensive. We are studying a lot of history and it's common knowledge to my kids that people who lived at this time are now dead. But it unlocks the story of her life. Sometimes we don't know much about people and what they do until they are gone. " said.

"Emily Dickinson's Letters to the World is where her sister finds her poems she had written after they had laid Emily to rest. The poems are about Emily's journey through life and how she felt through each step of life, along with what she wanted to do in the world. Her sister promises in the end that the world will read Emily's poems. Some of the poems are harder to understand, so as a teaching tool I would just use one page at a time because each page is like a mini poem and the picture on that page goes along with the poem. Then teach that poem and how you can incorporate your dreams and feelings into a poem. I loved how the words of the poem were on top of the picture. " said.

" It was impressive to read that one of the most popular poets of all time was unknown during her lifetime- her over 1700 poems being found by her sister after her death. A selection of Emily Dickinson's poems are shared in this picture book. " said.

" I can't believe I missed one of these Jeannette Winter bios! " said.
