When I came across this wonderful poem by Emily Dickinson a few weeks ago, I knew I needed to share it during Children’s Book Week. Dickinson’s poem celebrates the delightful experience of sinking deep into the pages of a book and embarking on a grand adventure—without ever leaving the comfort of our favorite chair:There is no Frigate like a Book
by Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)There is no Frigate like a Book
To take us Lands away,
Nor any Coursers like a Page
Of prancing Poetry–
This Traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of Toll–
How frugal is the Chariot
That bears a Human soul.
Happy Children's Book Week, and Happy Writing!
