Pirates on Texas Bluebonnet list

rubbermanPOETRY TIP: If anyone is struggling with a way to start your “thanks” poem, go to the Teacher page on my website, scroll down to Teaching Tool for the month of August, and try the association technique described there.

I was delighted to learn that PIRATES has been named to the Texas Bluebonnet Master List for next school year. As I understand it, at least 10,000 Texas students will be reading titles from the list of 20 nominees and eventually vote for their favorite. I’m up against the likes of Gary Paulsen, Linda Sue Park, Kate Klise, and many other great writers, so I’m pleased to see my book of poetry listed among them.
