Jan Godown Annino hosts our Poetry Friday today HERE at Bookseed Studio with a challenge today to "SING". She's "singing" with Amanda Gorman this time, a tune-filled post! Thanks, Jan!
More postcard hugs and a snowy song for Jan! I read on the list that Jan called for music and thought Tuesday and Wednesday about what I could "sing" about that would be "approved". Then, shoveling on Wednesday morning, I kept hearing the scrape back and forth of the snow shovel and had an idea. Sing along if you wish! Thanks for the idea, Jan!
The ALA awards last Monday are always exciting, and even more exciting this year is that two Poetry Friday people won awards! Congratulations to Irene Latham, with Karim Shamsi-Basha & Yuko Shimizu, whose book, The Cat Man of Aleppo, won a Caldecott Honor. Also, Congratulations to Laura Shovan, with Saadia Faruqi , whose book, A Place At The Table, was named a Sydney Taylor Notable book. Both books are very special!
| It's a good thing to listen to Becky Herzog's advice for "quiet" and she's celebrating music, too!|
A Quiet morning
reflection on a new year
music to my ears
