    1. Written by children's and young adults' authors, this collection of short stories is based on the premise of receiving an empty box as a birthday present.Of the array, two were suited for reading to students; one was a poem by Karla Kuskin, "The Birthday of Madeleine Blore". I am not generally fond of rhyming poetry; it often feels deadly to be captured by its meter tapping away like a woodpecker on the roof. But Kuskin, one can see, intends more than meter as she breaks rules and plays with rhy [...]


    2. I enjoyed reading Birthday Susprises: Ten Great Stories to Unwrap by Johanna Hurwitz.

I loved all tthe different takes on the premise and it was a nice break from serious high stakes stuff.
