In this title, dedicated to nonets--nine-line poems in which the first line has one syllable and each line adds a syllable, culminating in a final line with nine (or beginning with nine and ending with one)--clever poems show how much the number nine surrounds us in our everyday lives. Cats with nine lives run home to rest; children gather to play nine innings of baseball; a museum contains facts about the Little Rock Nine; and Pluto dreams of becoming the ninth planet again. Lively scenes illustrated with warm colors depict kind, friendly siblings, friends, classmates, and adults learning and sharing special moments together. Words in each poem have been carefully chosen by Latham to share not only facts but also humor and dreams, asking readers to imagine. A fun book of warm scenes and clever lines that will invite youngsters to revisit this world over and over again. You won't be able to look at the numeral nine again without seeing its big smile.
