Poet Laureate "Pick" and "Poetry Minute"

I am so pleased to announce that my latest collaboration with Janet Wong (and 77 other poets), The Poetry Friday Anthology for Science, has been selected as the Children's Poet Laureate Monthly Book Pick for April 2014. The Children's Poet Laureate, Kenn Nesbitt, highlights a different book of poetry each month. You'll find this and all his monthly "picks" at the Poetry Foundation website here.

Kenn has also initiated the Poetry Minute website, featuring a poem-a-day for sharing with children. This includes the full text of a different poem every day, along with information about the poet and her/his work. There'a a lovely variety of poems and poets piling up there! 

Check it out!
