Friday Blurb: an Impromptu Poetry Friday Post

With no fanfare this morning at breakfast, Catherine recited a passagethat she’d memorized …

Diary of a Wimpy Kid book 2 by Jeff KinneyRodrick’s “The Amazing Moose” report from Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules by Jeff Kinney. For those who haven’t read the book (that includes me), Rodrick creates a rhyme / song to complete one of his school assignments. I had this great plan to add the little ditty here, but of course the book went to school today!

Which is its OWN kind of poetry, I guess! When the book and its reader return home this afternoon, I’ll add it here!

In the meantime, be sure to visit Mary Lee and Franki at A Year of Reading. They are hosting today’s Poetry Friday roundup.

Next Friday is the opening day of National Poetry Month, and Mary Lee is working on a fun “treasure hunt cum tag” game using QR codes. How cool is that?

And of course the Kidlitosphere’s own Greg Pincus has his annual 30 Poets / 30 Days event. This may be the third year … and wait ’til you see the lineup. Here’s the tease Greg gave us yesterday:

The poems that are already rolling in are fantastic, so I can promise another great April ahead wherein I will get more and more excited.

Yeah! It’s gonna be F-U-N! As we find more events, we’ll chat about them, too. If you’ve got a kidlit-related event, be sure to add a comment so I don’t miss yours.
