Read20 Selection for August: Toasting Marshmallows

Toasting Marshmallows: Camping Poems by Kristine O'Connell George is the Read20 Book Club selection for August. Luann Toth of School Library Journal says, "George has penned 30 sublimely simple poems that capture the sights, sounds, smells, and sensations of a family's camping trip, from pitching the tent to pulling up stakes and returning home... The poems are varied and inventive, replete with marvelous images and universal truths."
