This Week's Winner Is...

Sara Lewis Holmes of Read Write Believe is the lucky winner of Joyce Sidman’s outstanding new book of children’s poetry, Red Sings from Treetops: A Year in Colors. The book was beautifully illustrated by Pamela Zagarenski. I have little doubt that this collection of poems about color through the seasons will be found on many lists of “notable” children’s books of 2009.

Note to Sara: Please email me your snail mail address.

Here is the schedule for the upcoming drawings at Wild Rose Reader and Political Verses
  • April 26th—for comments left on posts dated April 19-25
  • May 1st—for comments left on posts dated April 26-30

The winner of the drawing that takes place on April 26th will receive a copy of Birds on a Wire: A Renga ‘Round Town, which was written by J. Patrick Lewis and Paul B. Janeczko and illustrated by Gary Lippincott. This poetry book would be an excellent springboard for a creative writing activity in an elementary or middle school classroom.

Find out who won a copy of American Wits: An Anthology of Light Verse edited by John Hollander over at Political Verses.

NOTE: This is Earth Week. I’m planning to help fellow Blue Rose Girl Anna Alter celebrate by being one of the stops on her mini-blog tour. Tomorrow, Anna and I will talk about her new book, What Can You Do with an Old Red Shoe? A Green Activity Book About Reuse. I will be holding a special book giveaway of Anna’s book. To be eligible to win a copy of What Can You Do with an Old Red Shoe—all you have to do is leave a comment at Anna’s blog tour post here at Wild Rose Reader.
