Well Defined: Vocabulary in Rhyme by Michael Salinger

Well defined front cover.jpg“Michael Salinger is one of the most gifted and loved performance poets on the circuit today, and like his other poetry, Well Defined has the style and attitude that young readers love.  This approach to vocabulary can’t help but succeed because each poem’s story leaves an indelible image in the reader’s mind.  Noah Webster is surely smiling.”

James Blasingame, Associate Professor, Department of English Education, Arizona State University Winner of the IRA Arbuthnot Award

“The personifications are witty and evocative, and the vocabulary is choice enough that the explorations will be intriguing to veteran users and novices alike.”

The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

 “The poems are as well-intentioned as they are well-written.”
