I think I have just about every anthology by Lee Bennett Hopkins, and I am happy to have another one to add to my collection! SCHOOL PEOPLE is a collection of poems celebrating the people children encounter during the school day. The poems are written by many of my favorite poets including members of our own Poetry Friday family. I especially love the way the opening poem “School’s Story” by Rebecca Kai Dotlich invites readers in and lets us know that we are all welcome, “I am waiting—come on in.” I hope this collection finds its way to every elementary classroom.
I’m honored to announce that I have poems in each of these two forthcoming anthologies. YAY! I’ll share more about each of them in a future post.
A big thank you to Michelle at Today's Little Ditty for hosting today.
