Lovely, peaceful book. I used it in a third/fourth grade homeschool assignment that covered several areas. Of course, haiku, but also explaining how something people aspire to sometimes still disappoints. We were working on the reconstruction period after the Civil War and through the Civil Rights Era. In particular, we were grappling with the concept of freedom.
This book is simple, makes a difficult topic accessible and the artwork is fantastic (and "reproducible" for a student to complement haikus s/he has created. Highly recommended.

At last, the master
Says, "That's hard to explain." And
That is all she says.
