Description

Maurice Sendak once described those he wrote for as “Children who are never satisfied with condescending material. Children who understand real emotion and true feeling. Children who are not afraid of emotional truth.” (Silvey; Children’s Books and Their Creators). This year those very children lost some giants of the literature world – Sendak, Jean Craighead George, Leo Dillon; Remy Charlip, Else Holmelund Minarik, and Margaret Mahy among them. What better way to celebrate their unique gifts than attend to the latest creations being offered to children, from pint sized readers to tweens? With more than twenty debut writers or illustrators represented among this brief assortment, it is clear that today’s children have been left in very capable hands. Here is a list of some of the best works of poetry published for children in the year 2012.
