Enormous Smallness by Matthew Burgess


Originally published in: 2015

What it’s about: Poet E.E. Cummings.

What made me pick it up: I saw it online while searching for other books and once I learned who it was about I went and found it on the shelf and checked it out.

My favorite things: This book reads like a poem. It includes a lot of information about Cummings’ life and writing as well as a few of his poems. The illustrations are inventive and beautiful.

Who it’s great for: Children who can read a longer picture book or sit through one being read to them. Anyone who likes poetry, especially fans of Cummings. Those who appreciate whimsy.

Erica’s rating: four-and-a-half-shells
