National Poetry Month

Working at the library today, we started to set up for April, National Poetry Month.  We’re not really big on poetry… I must confess… but the boss had a great idea.  She has some old metal trays and I spent some quality time on Amazon buying magnetic poetry kits.  Since I promoted it at the school this morning, I had to set them up to be ready for the afternoon classes of kids.

So the setup looks like this.

This is my favorite!!!!!

favorite poemRead that as “Open the book.  Tell the world that magic wanders.  Create a new page, chapter, and story.  Love a library.  Write a dream.”


****Side note.  I’m taking a little trip tomorrow, but neverfear!  I have a great guest post planned!  So great, in fact, that you have the chance to WIN a marvelous prize. I guarantee a laugh or two on top of that, so you can’t lose!  Come back tomorrow for sure!****
