Here’s what I received:

1.  Remember The Sun: Poems of Nature and Inspiration by Melanie Simms for review from the poet.

Poems on Nature and Inspiration This collection of poems by Melanie Simms (all previously published in magazines, newspapers and poetry journals) covers such themes as Pennsylvania place poetry, inspirational poetry, and reflections on nature and love. Remember the Sun: Poems on Nature and Inspiration offers a wide variety of poems to suit the diverse tastes of the poetic palette. This hardcover volume is 50 pages with numerous photographs.



2.  There’s a Pig in my Class! by Johanna Thydell and illustrated by Charlotte Ramel for review.

A lonely pig dressed and disguised as a student sneaks into school where he enjoys lunchtime and making new friends in this story that expands on the definition of inclusion.
