Uncle Emily by Jane Yolen

I found this book at the library and chose it because of the family theme going on here at MommaReads. I didn’t really know what it was about, but was incredibly delighted to find out it’s about Emily Dickinson and her nephew who takes one of her poems to school one day and ends up getting in a fight with one of his classmates about it. There are so many great messages in this book: like solving problems with words and how telling the truth is important, no matter how difficult it might be.
