Happy Birthday, Lee Bennett Hopkins!

Happy Birthday,
(April 13, 1938)
(I think it most appropriate that Lee Bennett Hopkins
--aka Mister Poetry Man--was born in the month of April.)

A star danced
and under that
was I born.
~ William Shakespeare
Then poetry did a jig!!!!!

Happy Birthday, indeed! He's done so much to further the enjoyment of children's poetry.

Dear Elaine:

Thank you for this post.

I miss laughing with you.

I'm off to dance the jig ... in your honor.

Hugs. Lee
