What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Celebrated poet Lee Bennett Hopkins shares a diverse collection of poems that ask (with the help of Newbery medalist Lois Lowry, former US Children’s Poet Laureate J. Patrick Lewis, and others), “Who do you want to be?” Kids can imagine pretending and dressing up in this playful poetry collection, flexing their creative muscles and bucking stereotypes. (Who says that girls can’t be knights and boys can’t be mermaids?) Fifteen poets write about who they might like to be, musing what life would be life as a wizard, a firefighter, a video-game inventor, and more. “There is nothing better than being yourself. You are unique and special in every way. Once in a while it might be fun to think about becoming someone (or something!) else. Who would you like to be? Imagine that you’re someone else!” –Lee Bennett Hopkins
