Poetry Friday: North, the Amazing Story of Arctic Migration



"At the very top
     of our world
is a huge wild place
called the Arctic.
Here in winter, the sun
     sinks away,
blizzards fill the darkness,
and even the seas
      freeze deep."

Celebrate poetry in nonfiction! Watch for this gem to be released in January. You'll feel as if you and your totz are joining the migration in this incredibly, beautiful book.
