I confess that my taste in poetry leans toward the humorous poems. Eloise Greenfield's books about family relationships definitely are the exception. Her careful observations about how families work is never stereotypical. I know many of my students can find themselves and people they love on the page.
I discovered Eloise Greenfield's work when I moved schools and a copy of Talk About a Family was in the library. I was happy to see recently that it was still in print.
