Abundant April

April is a month full of celebrations – we celebrate the earth, national parks and jazz; humor, penguins and pet owners. And, of course, poetry and literacy -- April is National Poetry Month and April 30th is El dia di los ninos, el dia de los libros/ Children’s Day, Book Day. Pat is thrilled to participate in two events sponsored by Kidlitosphere bloggers honoring National Poetry Month. Greg K at Gotta Book has created 30 Poets/30 Days where each day during April he’ll post a previously unpublished poem by a different poet. Over at The Miss Rumphius Effect, there’ll be interviews with poets every day. Pat is scheduled on April 30 for both blogs.

There’s a full description of these poetry related events and more at Miss Rumphius.

Thanks for the link, Laurina (and Pat!). I'm so excited about all the poetic goings-on this month and looking forward to helping celebrate Dia, too!
