Coming Soon!! The Amazing Glass House: A Haiku Storybook Illustrated Children's Book - Signed Copy
A long time ago, Mr. Phipps built a glass house as a gift to the people of Pittsburgh. Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens was a place for them to get out of the smoky city and back to the beauty of nature. Three children take the reader on a journey through this amazing glass house as they explore the many rooms, filled with goldfish, cacti, and haiku poems. The stories are the recollections of the author and her sisters, perhaps with a few embellishments. The book also includes a short history about Pittsburgh and Henry Phipps Jr. The Haiku Scoop has a simple definition and examples of these little poems that are so much fun to read and write.
