Brooks Books is pleased to celebrate the publication of this new anthology featuring haiku by 80 authors.
From the Editor's Preface:
Though each poem in this collection may not be a direct reflection of childhood, it is my wish that each poem ignites a discussion or creates a spark of curiosity. For when we live with curiousity and openness, the miracle of the present moment comes through.
My vision for this collection is for these poems to be read each day throughout the year. Read them with your child or grandchild, gift them to a friend whose children no longer live at home to spark memories from the past, or spontaneously sift through the book on a cloud-drift day. Spend time savoring each poem, share memories, or write poems together inspired by that day’s haiku.
~ Jessica Malone Latham

Another Trip Around the Sun: 365 Days of Haiku for Children Young and Old is a prescription to nourish your soul. Your prescription is to read one haiku a day. Too often our lives are too full, too packed with things
to do, places to be, problems to solve, worries and troubles to carry. We recommend that you find a way to hit the pause button, to take a time out, to stop the rush ... to find a moment of peace and quiet, to take a deep cleansing breath, to let yourself go and receive the blessings of this day, this place, this time, this moment. This is the essential gift of haiku.
~ Randy & Shirley Brooks
