April 2nd was International Children’s Book Day. And April is National Poetry Month. In celebration, I have two lovely options for you this week:
Option A: Be a kid!
You could read a picture book (or two or three) and share what you read.
Write up a post sharing your favorite books from childhood
Write up a post about reading together with your child(ren)
Option B: Be a poet!
Write your own poem and share with us!
Write bookish ABC poems–ABC’s of favorite authors, favorite books, favorite characters, favorite book blogs, or any combination of the above. Maybe even an ABC’s of a bibliophile or book addict. (A is for…B is for…etc.)(For example, ABC’s of Dr. Seuss)
Review a book you’ve read recently in haiku. (It doesn’t need to be a poetry book you’re reviewing, any book will do.) See Emilyreads for an idea of what I mean.
Read a poetry book and review it
Participate in Poetry Friday (This week’s host will be Carol’s Corner.)
Easy for me this week as I started this post yesterday. Is that cheating?
As for option two there is napowrimo which I will participate in as often as I can. This is a wonderful challenge because the prompts stir up new ideas and new ways of thinking about writing. My first poem is here.
