Guyku by Bob Raczka

The haikus in this book (organized by seasons) tickled me and reminded me of what it was like growing up: playing outside, riding bikes, enjoying nature. I gave the book to Z and he read it in 2 seconds. He said he liked it, too, for the same reason I like it.

One of his favorite haikus from the collection reads:

With baseball cards and
clothespins, we make our bikes sound
like motorcycles.

My favorite is the one when the boy says it must be winter because “Every time I open my/ mouth, a cloud comes out.”
The author, Bob Raczka, also wrote Lemonade.
