All Our Wild Wonder is yet another poem by Sarah Kay that I won’t get tired of rereading or relistening to, no matter how many times I do.
Not many poems can become a book all on its own, but Kay has a gift for doing so. Like B and The Type, All Our Wild Wonder is a piece that combines Kay’s style of storytelling with life lessons and positive outlook on the world. This poem explores the life-long influence that one person can have on an entire school full of children, just by caring around them more than others may have.
Much can be said about Kay’s writing. But I find that it speaks for itself even better than if I tried to put more words to this review. I suggest not skipping over this poem and this poet.
