Praise for Robert's first book of Maine poetry: MAINE The Way Life Is

"The Maine child's world of the rural working class is apt to be most vividly full of skidders, games in the snow, maple syrup, blackflies, clamshells, moose, seagull droppings, blueberries, and blaze orange; and Robert Pottle has captured the colorful scene most charmingly in his amusing twelve poems-of-the-month. Adults who share the common bond of growing up Downeast on the coast or inland will enjoy this book as much as the children." Sanford Phippen - Writer, Teacher, and Host of A Good Read

After reading Robert Pottles MAINE: The Way Life Is to my class the third graders quickly delivered their verdict; "Its a book that kids and grownups will all like! Its really funny. The pictures are cool!"

Pottles clever use of rhyme and wit paints a picture of the "whole Maine." From the fresh seafood and coastal spots of summer, to the cold, snowy woods of fall and winter we are reminded of why we choose to live here, and why so many people wish they did. This is a fine collection of fun poetry; a springboard for the study of a great state. Young and old readers alike will find this book to be truly "Wicked Good!" Jim Cliffe - third grade teacher

"The seasons in Maine are uniquely wonderful. MAINE: The Way Life Is is an amusing child's eye view of each month. Robert Pottle invites the reader to enjoy maple syrup March, blaze orange November, and ear muffs on noses in December as he takes you through the months in Maine." Barbara Winslow - teacher and author of Dance on a Sealskin

These descriptive vignettes about real life in rural Maine will be delightful read-aloud experiences for students in primary grades who will giggle at the gleeful wordplay and recognize the rhymes and patterns." Leigh Beatty - special education teacher
