Summer 2017

Dear Friends, I am thrilled that Margarita Engle is the national 2017-2019 Young People’s Poet Laureate. Years ago I remember picking up a slim little volume titled The Poet Slave of Cuba . I was astounded by the power this story in verse and delighted with the subsequent publication of The Surrender Tree .

Over the years I have continued to read and share Engle’s books with children and teens. Pictured below are three 2017 books written by this gifted poet. Be sure to spend time reading her work. You will be richly rewarded. This issue of The Reading Style Guide is filled summertime deliciousness. Join us as we construct a bridge, savor a tasty taco, and set sail with some awesome female pirates. Enjoy reading this summer. Read with Style,
