New Writer Honor
THINGS TO DO
"A poetic take on the world and the important things in it, from the sun and moon to a pink eraser, as experienced through a child's eyes and imagination."
I have been dying to share the news that I won a 2018 Ezra jack Keats New Writer Honor Award for my book THINGS TO DO. I never EVER thought I'd be the recipient of such a prestigious award for my first book.
Today, I'm sharing a poem from THINGS TO DO--one that was not included in the original manuscript that was sent to my editor Melissa Manlove at Chronicle Books.
Things to Do If You Are Boots
Splish in puddles.
Splash on the walk.
Make the fallen
