where I penned this post!
When I arrived at Mrs. B's house, she introduced me to my new home, the Poetry Box. Wow! There's nothing better for a poetry-loving penguin like me than to live in a box with a plethora of poems written by published poets and children from all over the United States. I begged Mrs. B to show me my upcoming travel itinerary. In November I'll travel to Utah, and then I'm off to Massachusetts for the month of December. I'll be in Michigan during January, and finally, I'll return to Ohio and Kevin Cordi in February where the box began its journey with Julie Johnson's students in February 2014.
Kevin Cordi and J. Patick Lewis dreamed up the idea of the Poetry Box, a box of unfinished poems that travels around the country. At each destination, the folders are unpacked, the unfinished poems are read, and students draw on their imaginations to complete the poems. Completed poems are added to the box before it travels to the next destination. Hey, if you've got to travel in a box, what's better than being in a box piled with pictures of children and poets, and pillowing your head on the poems they've created?
Be sure to stop by on Poetry Friday for the most stupendous and significant event in my life so far. I'm so excited that my feet are barely touching the ground. Just in case you didn't notice, look back at my picture.
See you Friday! ~ Percy
