The 2009 National Poetry Month Lalapalooza Post

Here are links to 30 days of great poetry posts in the kidlitosphere. I didn't get around to writing up all the poetry posts that I had planned for April--but I'll get around to that in the coming weeks and months. After all, we should celebrate poetry every month of the year!

FANTASTIC!

Elaine Magliaro said...

Jill,

You are most welcome. Poetry is my passion. I couldn't keep up with all the wonderful poetry posts during April. I had to compile them for myself--and my blog readers--for use as a poetry resource.

Mary Lee said...
