My five-word ditty recognizes the helpers who guide me to new poetry each week.
Poetry Love for Under $10
One of the things I love about our Poetry Friday community is learning about new books. Catherine recently blogged about the Spring Poetry Retreat she attended and the inspiration she received from Rebecca Kai Dotlich. I love Lemonade Sun, but could not recall any other specific books by Dotlich. I was surprised to discover that Mama Loves, a book that I've used for years as a mentor text for inspiring students' writing for Mother's Day was by Dotlich. And then I noticed Sweet Dreams of the Wild which was not available at our library. Because my daughter loves otters, I had to purchase a copy. It cost .01 + 3.99 shipping. The other book was recommended on Tricia's April 30th post about writing poetry. I was able to find a copy for $3.99 and free shipping. Best mail of the week was two padded envelopes of poetry love!
So grateful for this community where we celebrate poetry every week of the year. This week's roundup of poetry love is hosted by Michelle at Today's Little Ditty.
