Thirty Poets/Thirty Days, and more.

April Fool's Day kicks off the completely-real-and-not-a-joke National Poetry Month, and fans of poetry for kids have two daily ways to celebrate.

First, on the blog GottaBook, we have Thirty Poets/Thirty Days.  Each day of April a renowned children's poet will present a completely new, never-before-seen poem.  the event is kicked off today by none other than Jack Prelutsky.  Other poets include Jon Scieszka, Nikki Grimes, Jane Yolen, Douglas Florian, and Linda Sue Park.  And me at some point, though I won't know when my poem is scheduled to appear until shortly before it does.

And over at The Miss Rumphius Effect we have Poetry Makers, a month's worth of conversations with kid's poets about what they do.  It starts today with an interview with Kenn Nesbitt.  There'll be an interview with me some time next week–I'll link to it when it happens.

You'll be up on Wednesday the 8th, just so you know. And I can't wait!

I just wanted to mention that I recently won over some "bad" 4th grade boys to poetry by reading them stuff from Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich. Then they read to me, and it was a surreal, wonderful dream. Success!

Wow, I love that, Sarah. Thanks for letting me know.
