Poems In the Attic by Nikki Grimes illustrations by Elizabeth Zunon In her grandmother's attic, a young girl discovers a box full of poems written by her mother. Her mother's poems tell of her life as a military brat moving from place to place. In poems of her own, the girl tries to mirror her mother's experiences. Nikki Grimes' seemingly simple free verse and tanka poems effectively capture the nature of memories.
