I mean really! Monkeys in a barrel would be so hard to beat. But this was more fun than a barrel of monkeys!
These are the notes I received from the 5th graders after my recent author visit. We talked poetry as I shared content from A Great Nephew and a Great Aunt. I, also, talked about revising poems to make them more appealing. As an example, I showed how Janet Wong and I emailed about revisions for my poem, Buttons, that was recently published in the Poetry Friday Anthology for Celebrations. This anthology was compiled by Janet Wong and Sylvia Vardell.
Landon and I did have our picture made together since I shared our collaboration on A Great Nephew and a Great Aunt 🙂
So if you ever want something more fun than a barrel of monkeys . . . try a school visit! The thank you notes are the BEST!
