WHAT’S FOR DINNER by Katherine Hauth

Poetry Tag continues with a book review of a new book of poetry connected to yesterday's book review.

Today’s tagline: Poems about animals and what they eat

Guest Reviewer: Latoya Williams

Featured Book: Hauth, Katherine B. 2011. What's for Dinner?: Quirky, Squirmy Poems from the Animal World. Ill. by David Clark. Massachusetts: Charlesbridge Publishing, Inc. ISBN-13: 978-1570914713.

We have a new digital trailer for this book (and I reviewed it previously on Feb. 4, 2011)

Here’s Latoya’s book trailer.

Tomorrow’s tagline: Poems about animals of the sea

I hope you'll also allow me to plug my new book again, PoetryTagTime, an e-book with 30 poems, by 30 poets, all connected and downloadable right now at Amazon for your Kindle or Kindle app for your computer, iPad or phone. Just 99 cents. Don’t miss it.

This collection of 30 new, unpublished connected poems range from the humorous to serious, about tongues, turtles and toenails, in acrostics, quatrains, and free verse written by 30 of our best children's poets. And the “connections” between poems as the poets voice how their poems are interconnected in this game of poetry tag adds another layer of fun and meaning. You'll be able to share brand-new poems and poetry tips with children all month long for pennies a day!

Even if you don’t own a Kindle, you can download the free Kindle app for a number of devices, including your Windows or Apple computer, iPad, iPhone, BlackBerry, or Android-powered phone. Put the poems on your cell phone and you're ready with a "poem in your pocket," too!

Also, be sure to check out our web site ( and companion blog (PoetryTagTime.Blogspot) for strategies for sharing each of the 30 poems in the book, rolling out one per day throughout the month of April.

I love the PoetryTagTime anthology. What a terrific idea, and such a bargain, too. :-)

I just caught up with this trailer. Please let Latoya
know how well I think she captured the theme. I especially like the way she used the sloth excerpt and moving print, some stretching like taffy.
Nice assignment. Thank you for the idea.
