Hi All.  Please give me an idea/range of how many poems a poetry collection for middle grade readers (8-12-year-olds) usually has.  Thanks! :)

I have seen a wide variation. Perhaps go to your public library and check through their poetry collection?

You might also want to check online catalogs of the specific publishers you're hoping to sub to, in order to see how long their poetry collections are. Sometimes publishers differ on this sort of thing.
