Let's try this again.
Just as a bit of a catch-up--since my last entry here, I've had poems included in several books, including:
Switching on the Moon: A Very First Book of Bedtime Poems, collected by Jane Yolen and Andrew Fusek Peters, illustrated by G. Brian Karas (2010)
Nasty Bugs: Poems Selected by Lee Bennett Hopkins, illustrated by Will Terry (2012)
The Poetry Friday Anthology: Poems for the School Year with Connections to the Common Core, selected by Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong (2012)
The Poetry Friday Anthology for Middle School: Poems for the School Year with Connections to the Common Core, selected by Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong (2013)
And--ta-da!--two days ago was the official birthday of my new picture book, The Book Boat's In, illustrated by Frane Lessac, published by Holiday House.
It was inspired by a floating library/bookstore that traveled the Erie Canal from the mid-1830s until the mid-1850s. It was so much fun to write, and the folks at Holiday House have been wonderful to work with. I'm hoping this will be just the first of many books with them.
So--that brings us up to speed. Onward from here.
