by | Read by Juan Felipe Herrera

Children Ages 10+ • 1.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Herrera is at once a wise teacher and an anxious new U.S. poet laureate. The listener must write a poem, he thinks. Herrera is eager to help while he walks his dog, Lotus, and heads to DC's Library of Congress. This is no passive listen--it's an experience! There are sound effects as you learn to jabberwalk. Herrera's excitement guides the jabberwalking--gathering inspiration and making scribbles and burbles. The listener's poem will be brilliant--but the process is what this book is all about. Herrera stops his instruction for short remembrances of his childhood. The narration is less a book than a 1.5-hour spoken-word performance/writing lesson/kick in the pants to get writing. Take Herrera's advice and listen during a jabberwalk of creative inspiration. M.P.P. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2018]
