April 12-18, 2015: Celebrating the Week of the Young Child

April is a BIG month! As you've probably already noticed, it's both National Poetry Month AND Arab American Heritage Month. Plus, we have National Library Week and at the same time (this year), the official "Week of the Young Child"-- April 12-18, 2015. In celebration of early childhood, we have a wonderful poem in The Poetry Friday Anthology for Celebrations entitled, "I'm Bigger" written by Kristy Dempsey from the child's point of view.
Here's one school's celebration of the Week of the Young Child:

Love both of these Kristy Dempsey poems for this week - she is one ultra-talented writer (and all-around-wonderful citizen of the world, too!). Thanks for sharing!!
