Praise for 16 WORDS: William Carlos Williams and "The Red Wheelbarrow"
"At once spare and lush: a gorgeous introduction to the power of poetry."
--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"Williams’s koanlike poem closes the story, its marvel of compacted meanings
crystallizing everything that has come before."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Great for reading aloud, this will also be a good choice for launching poetry units
and inspiring neophyte poets."
A "fine introduction to a celebrated American poet."
--The New York Times Book Review
"A unique picture book that shows how poetry can capture a feeling or an image
with a few well-chosen words."
—School Library Journal
"Debut author Rogers suggests that there is power in noticing, as Williams did--
finding the extraordinary in the ordinary."
—The Horn Book Magazine
