Marshmallow Clouds: Poems Inspired by Nature

Author: Ted Kooser Connie Wanek
Illustrator: Richard Jones
Publisher: Walker

An elegantly produced book with beautifully crafted verse, and evocative illustrations that sit in pleasing harmony with the text. The nature poems in this book range from the minutiae to the elemental, an all-encompassing journey through the natural world that deserves to be luxuriated in. The language is imaginative, intelligent, and often playful, lending itself in equal measure to close considered reading, and reading aloud and sharing. Such attentive care for its subject matter can’t help but inspire the reader to engage with the nature on their own doorstep.

Winner of the CLiPPA 2023.
