Hello and Happy Poetry Friday! I was hoping to have this post up earlier, but we have transitioned my toddler out of his crib and nap time is now a bit more of a struggle. It is basically a tug-of-war of wills and I am sorry to say that I am losing.
Before I get to the poem I am sharing today, I wanted to let everyone know that I am giving a copy of THE HUG by Erin McLaughlin and Penny Dunbar. You can see my review of the picture book and enter here.
Since my days of late have been filled with tug o’ wars and hugs, I thought it would be appropriate to share Shel Silverstein’s poem “Hug O’ War”. I love Shel Silverstein’s voice so I was tickled to find this clip of him reading his poem.
And don’t forget that National Poetry Month is right around the corner! I am super excited (and a bit nervous) to be participating in Irene Latham’s progressive poem. 30 children’s writers and bloggers will all work together over the course of the month to create a poem.
Each day, a new person will add one line.. There is no collaborating ahead of time so it will be a surprise to everyone to see the twists and turns the poem will take! Please be sure to join us throughout the month. The schedule with links are included below.
