Though I don’t know how people are finding this book, I’m not surprised they like it when they do. The poet reflects on many different aspects of life, sometimes in rhyme (though he manages to largely avoid the most sing-songy mechanical type) and sometimes leaning toward the sappy, but not as saccharine as pointedly inspirational writers. Pleasant photographs throughout to accompany the poems adds to the homey appeal of the book. Keep it on the shelf until patrons utterly abandon it.
