It is 115 degrees; our cooler is broken. SO, thanks to good good (good) friends, J.J. and I our having a sleepover. Good friends, cool rooms, and poetry. Good friends.
JJ (age 4), Lia (age 9), and Aria (age 7) made Chocolate Milk-Cup-Stickers:
J.J. says, “I like to write sad poems. Because they look so good.”
Lia says, “I like to write sad poems too. Because they are fun–they have more detail and rhyming words”
These young poets have a reveiw up on the NYQ for the amazing book, I TAKE BACK THE SPONGE CAKE.
