  • IMPERFECT: poems about mistakes: an anthology for middle schoolers

    Why an anthology about mistakes? Because we make mistakes all the time. Some are the size of erasing a hole in your paper, mispronouncing a word, or tripping over your shoelace.

How can we make the most of the good mistakes and do our best to fix the ones that need fixing? Poetry can help us figure it out.
