Household Tales of Moon and Water

A collection of poems by

This collection of forty-four poems by a Newbery Medal winner is a quiet celebration of domestic life. Willard describes personal events-the birth of her child, an imaginary conversation with her small son, tending her garden-and each poem becomes a story that elevates the commonplace and renders the ordinary special. "Willard is full of surprises. She writes about the natural world with the vigorous specificity of someone newly come upon it, original and wise, all at once" (Maxine Kumin).
