GUEST WRITER ANGELA LARDNER RECOMMENDS DICTIONARY FOR A BETTER WORLD: POEMS, QUOTES, AND ANECDOTES FROM A-Z BY IRENE LATHAM AND CHARLES WALTERS

This book combines two of my favourite things: poetry and quotes!

By using a wide range of poetic forms and addressing various topics such as: diversity, tenacity, hope, kindness, gratitude, and love, (and many more) the authors describe the world they want to see, by going through the alphabet.

Mixed in with each poem, there is also a quotation related to the word, an anecdote from one of the authors about a personal experience they have had, and a “Try It!” prompt for readers to take action.

And the artwork, by Mehrdokht Amini, is beautiful.

This book offers so much opportunity for discussion, writing, and personal growth. It could lead to change within in the reader and within the world; it could lead to a better world.
