Traveling Over To Another Blog

            I was a Cybils Judge for the poetry selection this year and was asked by Myra at Gathering Books to write my thoughts about my time up to the judging.  You can find me there today! I am grateful to Myra for inviting me to share.
            It was a pleasure to work with the committee, facilitated by the calm and clear-minded Jone McCullough, to be found at Check It Out.  You can find a list of my fellow judges in the post, as well as the poetry finalists.


One definition of poetry that children will love:  Imaginary gardens with real toads in them. Marianne Moore

And now I can celebrate the poetry winner, BookSpeak! Poems About Books by Laura Purdie Salas.  You can find her at LauraSalas: Writing The World For Kids.

CONGRATULATIONS LAURA!!!
