Book Review


In a collection of poems, Salas shares her love of books. Reaching all the ingredients that make up a book, from chapter books to flashy covers to the index, Salas has rhyming words to soothe her fellow book lovers' hearts. The use of personification is utilized in many aspects to give books life and create a greater appreciation for all they do for society. A friend, an escape, an adventure, and time travel--the possibilities contained within a new book, or an old well loved book, are endless.
