Barbara’s Notes: I wish I could write like Karen Hesse. Out of the Dust is captivating and a extraordinary tool for teaching poetry. Readers get so caught up on the actual story, they can forget it is a series of poems. The focus guide teaches poetic terms while providing opportunities for critical thinking.
