I’ve been sharing a lot about me, me, me lately, so this week, I want to share poems from some books I’ve mentioned here before but want to remind you of.? First up is a poem from Dear Wandering Wildebeest, Irene Latham’s fabulous new poetry collection with Millbrook (yay, house-mate)! I shared a delightful poem as a sneak peek before the book was published, and now I want to remind you that the book is available (in case you’ve missed the many lovely posts about it in recent weeks on other kidlit blogs).
And I’m happy to say that if you’re going to NCTE in November, you can stop by the Lerner booth on Saturday from noon-1, and Irene and I will be signing WILDEBEEST and WATER CAN BE… And Lerner usually gives away the books! Hope to see you there.
Please forgive the lack of formatting below. The poem looks better in the book!
Lioness, After the Hunt
After the choosing,
after the chase,
after first taste.
savors favorite flavors,
