Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
Well, no trick or treaters came by on our chilly Tuesday night, so now I’m battling those peanut butter cup treats all by myself!
Last week, I didn’t make it in with a bat poem, so I’m sharing this one this week. I’ve written a number of bat poems over the years. This one is from the anthology One Minute Till Bedtime (Little, Brown), edited by former Children’s Poet Laureate Kenn Nesbitt. It’s such a fun book! I need to pull it out for a re-read!
Also, I’m celebrating two things this week: Lovely news from the California Reading Assocation,
I’ll be paired with the fabulous Mary Lee Hahn at that 11 a.m. session! Anybody else going to NCTE this year?
Oh, one more thing!
And for more wonderful poetry, don’t miss the Poetry Friday Roundup with poet-author Buffy Silverman. I need to read her beautiful new picture book, On a Flake-Flying Day!
