These poems will inspire readers to slow down, turn off their digital devices, and find a quiet place to lose themselves in an unforgettable collection of free verse. For readers who may be intimidated by the unfamiliar names of artists and writers in Voices in the Air, there's a section of biographical notes with a few lines about each person. An index of first lines makes it easy to locate a favorite poem or be intrigued enough by a line ("Up late watching TV commercials while waiting" or "Fifty years before you did your homework") to try a poem they haven't yet read.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
