Poetry Friday: Original Haiku


Fall is definitely in the air. We had our first major storm last weekend. Thinking haiku this week

Now is the time to nominate your favorite children’s and YA poetry book for the CYBILS Award. It’s our eighth year!

Need some ideas? Hop over to Poet! Poet! Anastasia has some suggestions. Or visit Sylvia Vardell at Poetry For Children who has a great list of poetry books as well.

Important to remember that novels in verse belong in either in middle grade or YA fiction. Beautiful single poems with illustrations belong in fiction picture books. We want poetry collections by a single poet or collections by several poets.

Time is short. Hurry over to the CYBILS to nominate. Time is short! The window is open October 1 through October 15.

Poetry Friday is hosted by Dori Reads. Hop on over.
Which reminds me, stop by next week for a Mortimer Minute. I was invited by Irene to host Mortimer next week.


Happy Poetry.
Happy Reading.
