Thanks so much to my friends at the Montessori Children's Garden for inviting me back for their Literacy Night. What fun we had. They had beautiful poems posted all around the room. During the evening they made "Cat in the Hat" hats, bookmarks, caterpillars... And helped me by coloring illustrations that I did for several of my poems. We even played rhyming games. They are a very talented group. Keep reading and writing guys. I hope that many of you send some of your beautiful work out to the magazines that we talked about. You can do it!
Here's a picture of a few of my new friends that stayed after to show off their projects for the camera. Great work guys!
Cathy grew up in Illinois and still remembers the first time she heard one of her elementary teachers read poetry from Shel Silverstein's "Where the Sidewalk Ends". She was hooked! Cathy's poetry has appeared in the anthologies "AND THE CROWD GOES WILD!: A GLOBAL GATHERING OF SPORTS POEMS" and "LADYBUG, LADYBUG AND OTHER FAVORITE POEMS". She is also published in the following magazines: LADYBUG, HIGHLIGHTS HIGH FIVE, HIGHLIGHTS HELLO, TURTLE, HUMPTY DUMPTY, HOPSCOTCH, YOUR BIG BACKYARD, CONFETTI and WEE ONES, U.S.KIDS as well as Mc GRAW HILL EDUCATIONAL TESTING.
