My Uncle Emily
Audience: Preschool - 3rd Grade
What would it be like to have the famous poet Emily Dickenson as your very own aunt? In this beautifully told story, 'My Uncle Emily' by Jane Yolen, young Gilbert describes how special his 'Uncle' Emily is and how much he loves her. Gilbert and his Uncle Emily spend special moments together laughing, chasing butterflies, and sharing poems. One day, Gilbert learns a very important lesson about truth and understanding when 'Uncle' Emily sends him to school with a poem and a bee. In this tender story of love, we discover the special bond that existed between Gilbert and his aunt and gain an insight into the loving and creative person of Emily Dickenson.
