It’s Poem in Your Pocket Day

Mirror, Mirror by Marilyn Singer.Hi Everyone!  I hope you are all enjoying your April vacation.  Did you know that today is National Poem in Your Pocket Day?  It is a great way to share a piece of poetry with your friends and family.  If you don’t have a favorite poem, maybe you can borrow mine.  This year, I chose “The Road” by Marilyn Singer.  It is from her book called “Mirror, Mirror”.  This is a book full of poems written in reverso.  That means they can be read from top to bottom and bottom to top and tell a different story each way.  Here’s the poem.

“It may be such

A fairy tale secret,

this much

I know:

The road leads


you need to go.”

Did you read it both ways?  Which direction did you like best? I like reading this poem from the bottom to the top.  Have a great Poem in Your Pocket Day, and don’t forget to share it with a friend!

April Vacation is Here

I hope you all have a great April vacation!  What will you be reading?  I plan to read the first book in the Infinity Ring series, A Mutiny in Time.  Did you see it at the book fair?  Have you read it?  Whatever you read, I hope it is something you enjoy.  Tell me about it here by leaving a comment.

Book Fair a Success!

Thank you to everyone who came to our Spring Scholastic Book Fair! We had a full week of excited students and happy shoppers. Our sales increased 15% over last year’s totals. We hope to put this money towards a SMARTboard for the library, or maybe iPads. What do you think would be best?

If you missed the fair, you can shop online until Friday, April 7th.
