Bag in the Wind by Ted Kooser

Bag in the Wind by Ted Kooser, illustrated by Barry Root, 2010 Candlewick Press

If someone could grab a plastic bag flying in the wind and turn it into a nice picture book, that would be United States Poet Laureate (2004-2006) Ted Kooser. He takes the readers along the plastic bag's many reuses showing some human generosity and creativity in the process. Ted Kooser's poetry has been enjoyed by our family since our Nebraska days and his prose for children is equally charming.
