You are so good! And you said you didn't have time this month. This roundup sure took time. Thanks for doing this. I'm so caught up in my own posts that I've missed some of these other gems.

I'm way behind with some of my major plans for National Poetry Month! I just felt I couldn't keep track of all the great poetry posts and wanted to compile them in a post so it would be easy for me to go back and read them all at my leisure.

Thanks so much for all your hard work on this, Elaine. I'm sharing it with all my Writing for Children students at Vermont College of Fine Arts.

Julie, I thinks it's great that so many bloggers in the kidlitosphere are really getting into the celebration of poetry during the month of April. I'm glad you'll be sharing this list of links.

Anastasia Suen said...
