LITERATURE AND THE CHILD

Hi everyone,

51OztBZZNrL__SX375_BO1,204,203,200_
As if all the wonderful support I’ve received during the last several days weren’t enough to perk me up, yesterday’s mail brought a long-awaited treasure. My copy of LITERATURE AND THE CHILD, 9th Edition, Cengage Learning, arrived. It is, as you can see, a handsome book (521 pages, priced at $199) and masterfully edited by Lee Galda and Lauren Aimonette Liang. I’m proud to be in it.

My poem, which originally appeared in EASY POETRY LESSONS THAT DAZZLE AND DELIGHT (Harrison & Cullinan, Scholastic), is an example of link rhyming (in which the final word or syllable of one line rhymes with the first word or syllable of the next line), and is called “The Future Me.”

My special thanks to the editors and good wishes for the success for this edition.

It’s my pleasure to be in this edition too. I don’t remember when I began to be included in this grand resource book but it was at least a few editions ago. I’m grateful to Bernice Cullinan for selecting me originally and to Lee Galda for keeping me in the lineup.
