Some Kind of Love: A Family Reuinion in Poems by Traci Dant, illustrated by Eric Velasquez
The wheels are already turning for using this book with students to write their own family poems that begin with "Must be some kind of love." So many great details in these poems to share and emulate.
One of my favorites from the book:
Must be some kind of love
'cause daddy says, We don't
ever want to forget any member
of our loud-laughing,
hat-wearing, pearl-necked, knee-
stockinged, shoe-shined family.
So we all stand on the green shore
of Grandma's lawn and smile wide
when the photographer says, Cheese.
