Full of relatable and hilarious observations on parenting, this book had me laughing long after I'd finished it (and then recited each poem to my equally hysterical husband). With titles ranging from "I am fully aware the wheels on the bus go round and round" to "Is your sense that you will ever move out of the house?", this book is perfect for anyone in the midst of parenthood, no matter what season they find themselves in.

Part memoir, part backyard natural history Late Migrations packs a wallop in a tiny package. Renkl treats the lives and deaths she sees in her backyard with the same deference and respect as that of her family. A beautiful study on grief and loss and the importance of living a full life.

Writing a review for this book is gonna be hard but I'm going to try. This may be the I best book I've read this year. So many raw and stunning sentences just waiting for you to fall in love with.  Told through letters from a son to a mother, I underlined the hell out of my copy. It broke my heart but it also put it back together. Read this and join the Ocean Vuong fan club with me.
