Hurrah! What good news. We quote large sections of A House is a House for Me around our own abode.

I love Mary Ann's poetry. Kids take such delight in its rhythm and rhyme. Its poetry young kids can really relate to.

Glad to see your post. I was lucky enough to go to Chicago for the award presentation and wrote about it on my blog, PoetryforChildren. Love all the material you have gathered on Mary Ann here and elsewhere. Awesome!
