Things I Like: Poems by Zerrik Harrington

Things I like:  Poems by Zerrik Harrington is a new release published by Vista Grande Elementary School.  

These charming poems cover a range of topics from video games to family pets to my personal favorite:

                Kansas State 
Kansas State has many people - 
Many football players -
I love Kansas State - 
My grandma and Grandpa lived there - 
I love them - 
I love Kansas State.
The original artwork that illustrates this volume of poetry shows great talent, creativity and bold use of Magic Markers, as can be seen in this impressionistic rendering of the flag of the state of Kansas:

The author, a handsome young man with a smile that melts his grandma's heart, lives in Albuquerque with his mother, brother and two dogs.  He hopes to visit Kansas State (and his grandparents) later this summer.  He is currently taking a break from writing to work on his soccer career.
