My new book comes out today! Would you like a chance to win an autographed copy? Just leave me a comment by Sunday, August 9th, 6pm. Three winners will be randomly chosen. Good luck to all!

Origami and Haiku

I was invited to participate in Penny Parker Klostermann’s wonderful series featuring family collaborations of art and poetry. The series titled: A Great Nephew and a Great Aunt, started out with Penny’s poems based on her nephew, Landon’s drawings. They’ve teamed up to produce some brilliant art and poems. Then, Penny started inviting others to join in the fun. I am happy to share my collaboration with my great stepson, Gabe (his origami/my haiku). Please join us here!

Poetry Friday: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

This past Tuesday, I had a fantastic surprise that I just have to share with you. Astronaut, Samantha Cristoforetti, who was living on the International Space station for 200 days (until yesterday when she returned to earth) recited the poem from my picture book, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. It was out of this world- literally! You can watch the video here.

Twinkle Cover 120 res

Jama Rattigan at Jama’s Alphabet Soup has some delightful blueberry-themed offerings as well as the Poetry Friday round-up of poems. Please check them out here!

Revising Rhymes


Today I am very happy to be the featured blogger on Angie Karcher’s outstanding site! If you are not familiar with it, I urge you to check it out. It’s chock-full of informative posts on the topic of rhyming picture books. She also includes lots of resources, writing prompts and much more! And,  if you are interested in the rhyme editing process and want to read some of my lousy first drafts, then hop on over here.
