Our second contender in the April Book Brawl is Way to Go! Sports Poems. This collection includes 15 new poems along with 27 that were previously published in collections such as Sidewalk Racer and Other Poems of Sports and Motion. Morrison does an excellent job of putting you in the heart of the action, includes a variety of sports from basketball, baseball, track, surfing, and skiing, and digs deep into the emotion and spirit of sport. Spelman's pen-and-ink drawings add to the action!
