Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
How is it possible that March is halfway over! I’m teaching at a Young Authors Conference today, which is always fun. (It’s fun when I’m feeling well. We’ll see how today goes, as I’m–hack, hack–feeling gross.) We’ll be talking and writing about a really serious topic, though, so I’m sharing something lighthearted and fun here on the blog. I have a new paperback version of The Putrid Poetic Ponderings of Louis J. Pasternak AKA Dr. Skullstench!
I made a short video to introduce the book to you, and I hope you’ll share it if you know teachers who might like it!
Also, if you’re interested in poetry, don’t miss my poetry tips for teachers from my visit to One Question with Colby Sharp earlier this week. Would love it if you’d share that video with your teacher friends!
And for much more wonderful poetry, check out the Poetry Friday Roundup with Linda at Teacher Dance!

I love your book Laura, I was smiling all the way through your wonderful reading! I wonder about that moss between his toes… Great character names too, thanks! Hope your hacking gives you a break and you’re feeing much better soon.
Thanks! The Young Authors Conference went well–I didn’t infect too many kids:>)
I hope you’re feeling better this morning, Laura, and had a great time at the conference. I love hearing about this book, a new one from you. I imagine that Ingrid’s class of third graders will love it. They, even the girls, are all about what’s gross!
Thanks, Linda–hoping it finds a few readers…

Ha! I think I might know Louis. Great poems….I think my sixth graders need these.
I love this trailer, Laura. Your book sounds so great for children. Can’t wait until we are all together for #NYEDChat.
Thanks, Carol–hoping it finds a few readers, but since it’s indie-published, it probably will not. And on “NYEDChat, me, too! I need to gather some resources to share:>)

I love this book! If I were still teaching, I would be snapping up copies for m classroom. I can picture those students I had that would love to share it with! Shoot, I would still enjoy it myself!
