Dear Alberto Ríos from Eliaz

Dear Alberto Ríos,

My name is Eliaz. I am in 8th grade. I like how your expression felt like we were actually having a conversation. When and why did you start poetry? My favorite part was the last line because it sounds like you are saying "once you read one book it will change your life forever." I also thought in the poem it sounded like you don't like books and how they are a hazard. What was your favorite part?
