Happy National Poetry Month!

April is National Poetry Month. That's right...30 days set aside for people everywhere to read, write, and just plain enjoy poetry. There's a lot going on in the next month.

GottaBook and Brimful Curiousities have the scoop.

Poetry Books I've enjoyed recently (reviews pending):

  • A Curious Collection of Cats by Betsy Franco
  • African Acrostics by Avis Harley
  • Falling Down the Page collected by Georgia Heard
  • Sky Magic selected by Lee Bennett Hopkins
  • My Hippo Has the Hiccups by Kenn Nesbitt
  • The Cuckoo's Haiku by Michael J. Rosen
  • A Whiff of Pine, A Hint of Skunk: A Forest of Poems by Deborah Ruddell
  • Red Sings from the Tree Tops by Joyce Sidman
  • Steady Hands by Tracie Vaughn Zimmer

Here's wishing you a wonderful National Poetry Month 2010!
