A Song about Myself - John Keats, Chris Raschka

Staff Pick

Originally included in a letter to his sister, written to make her smile, poet John Keats’s A Song About Myself (Candlewick, $17.99) does not disappoint. A whimsical rhyme brought to life by Chris Raschka’s detailed and delightful watercolor illustrations takes you on a romp through the countryside of Scotland with the young Keats. Arriving at the end of the poem, you feel like you’ve just finished a long walk with a close friend. In four short chapters, Keats has crafted a fast-paced story while providing opportunities for the reader to pause and reflect along the way. It’s a journey you’ll want to make all over again. Ages 6-9.
