My extremely writing-talented friend posted on her blog today a reminder that April is National Poetry Month. I whole-heartedly concur with her recommendation to read a poem a day this month, any poem at all.
I also encourage trying a great library poetry activity: book spine poems. What wonderful, crazy poems can you come up with using books on your shelf or in your library? I'll try to share a few of my own throughout the month.
I am a children's librarian living, working, and reading in Illinois. It makes me happy to help folks--of any age!--find books they'd like to read. I am passionate about early literacy initiatives, science and math programming, and engaging kids of all ages with stories whenever I can.
This blog is solely mine, and it does not reflect anyone's opinions but my own.
