My First School Visit

You know that saying, “It was more fun than a barrel of monkeys?”—Well, I have always wondered what in the world could be more fun than a barrel of monkeys?Monkeys_in_barrel

I mean really! Monkeys in a barrel would be so hard to beat. But this was more fun than a barrel of monkeys!

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.poetry friday celebrations

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!
