Autumn is coming. It's my favorite time of year. I love the cooler temperatures, gorgeous colors, and autumn-scented air. Next week, we're expecting another heatwave, but that's okay because I have hope that it won't last long. Having hope changes the way we see the world.
WHAT IS HOPE? is collection of 40 ekphrastic poems that are sure to inspire readers and fill them with hope. This book is a Children's Book Council "Hot Off the Press Selection" for August 2023. WHAT IS HOPE? is a valuable resource for teachers, parents, and librarians. 100% of the profits will be donated to the IBBY Children's Fund.
Readers will find poems by some of our Poetry Friday friends as well as other popular names in the children's poetry community. I am thrilled and honored to have one of my poems among them.
The positive message in every poem makes WHAT IS HOPE? an excellent choice for readers young and old. We all need a daily dose of hope!
Thank you to Ramona for hosting this week on her blog, Pleasures from the Page.
Have a great weekend!
