What a wonderful book! 50 alphabetical spread-long entries for words such as Dialogue, Hate, Peace, and Vulnerable, each composed of 5 parts: a short poem, a definition of the poem's form, a related quote from a famous person or book, a paragraph in which one of the two authors discusses what the word means to them, and a "Try It!" prompt to put the idea into action; plus wonderful illustrations and art design. So much variety within the format, of tone, style, and topic. So many layers of ways to encounter the book and consider the topics. I want to buy it for my kids when they are old enough.
