|I shared a poem last year from Douglas Florian‘s Dinothesaurus, but I couldn’t resist sharing another one. That’s because I’m very excited about getting his new book, Poetrees, which I haven’t seen yet! We’ll both be at the Texas Library Association conference in April, and I’ll be buying my copy there.
Meanwhile, I’m satisfying my appetite for Douglas’ ever clever poetry and art by rereading Dinothesaurus today. If you don’t already have this one, buy it when you get Poetrees!
We’re PLEASE-ee-oh-sawrs. We’re car-ni-vores.

I know there are big doings all over the kidlitosphere for National Poetry Month in April–yay! Since I’m once again going to be on the road with school visits and conferences, I’m keeping it simple. I’ll post one poem a day, kids’ or YA, and on 15 Words or Less Thursdays, I’ll be asking participants to write poems specifically for kids.
Meanwhile, check out the Poetry Friday Roundup today at Julie Larios’ The Drift Record!
Wednesday is the last day to vote for my poetry book Stampede in the Minnesota Readers’ Choice. Will you click on the aqua banner at the top of the post to vote? Thanks so much!
