April is National Poetry Month!

April is National Poetry
month and I am
stirring up a
pot of poems
steaming hot poems,
one for every day.

But this pot is so big
and I can't fill it alone
so if any one at home
could add to this stew,
I could really use

Please send me POEMS! If you have personal favorites by other poets, if you have written your own poems, if you want to send me a video clip of you and/or your children reading a poem - poetry appropriate for children only, please - DO NOT HESITATE TO SHARE! I am going to post a poem-a-day for the whole month of April and reviews of books of poetry for children. There will also be posts on "Why Poetry Matters," "How to Read a Poem," "Picture Book Poetry," excellent links and lots more!
