Bridget Wilson blogs at What is Bridget Reading. She is the Youth Services Librarian for a Regional Library in North Carolina. She presents programs, develop collections, & much more for four libraries.
She nominated Lisa Wheeler's The Pet Project (Atheneum Books for Young Readers, April 2, 2013) in the poetry category, and said the following about it:
Synopsis: A young girl wants a pet. Her parents don't give her a definite answer,
but they encourage her to research her options. The girl's research is
interesting, eye-opening, and hilarious.
What I thought: Oh! I can't wait to share this with my 1st and 2nd graders when I do outreach storytime. They'll love it as I did. I laughed out loud several times while reading. My favorite poems are sheep (too true!), bunnies, and disappointments. I love the illustrations especially the bold black lines.
