There’s a new e-newsletter in town, the 4:00 Book Hook!
Each month, the free Book Hook will recommend children’s books, from preschool through young adult titles. You can read all about it and learn how to subscribe here. The newsletter targets people who share books with kids–teachers, librarians, parents, grandparents, etc. Sound like anyone you know? Me too!
A group of talented kids’ writers are providing the reviews, and Kristy Dempsey (whom you might know from Me With You) wrote a terrific review of my poetry book Stampede! Poems to Celebrate the Wild Side of School. She said, in part:
"In each of the schools I visited this year to present poetry workshops with K – 5th students, STAMPEDE was hands-down the winner in kid appeal. . .If you’re looking for a book to assist students in learning about metaphor, simile, personification and other figurative language, STAMPEDE! will have your kids in stitches and itching to practice writing some poetry of their own."
How cool is that? Thanks, Kristy, for the fun review and for sharing Stampede on your school visits!
