November 15, 2023 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
Magic and Wonder and Selected Poems, a new book by Vincent Visco, has been released by RoseDog Books.

Magic and Wonder and Selected Poems brings together two worlds, urban and pastoral. Combining elements from each to create a unique perspective of the simple things in life too often overlooked, the grittiness of growing up in a city environment and the curative quality of nature are an essential combination for creating character in a person.

These poems present a view into the everyday experiences that we should focus on rather than the harangue of negativity that is all around us. In a word, they are uplifting. Quite often, the works are humorous with some carrying social commentary but never browbeating. They are always positive in nature and a panacea to a world in turmoil. The title for this collection presents an essential task for all adults–that is, the need to read to children in order to open their eyes to the magic and wonder of words, creating a confidence to pass that on to others.
