National Coin Week news

Last week was National Coin Week in the United States (and yes, it's a real thing!). And my poem, "Pocket Change", was featured over at Sylvia Vardell's blog, Poetry for Children, complete with recitation of my poem in English by four kids, and in Spanish by another two.

My thanks to Amelia, Ahouefa, Charoudin, and Emily for their awesome job reciting the poem in English, and to Gilvanice and Shiomara for their excellent job reciting it in Spanish, and to their teacher, Cynthia H., who made the film in the first place!


I hope you'll check out Sylvia's post, but here's the full video:



And in case you missed it, I hope you'll check out yesterday's post here, which includes an original pantoum I wrote, which I'm calling "Twenty-Two a Day".

That's super cool! Loved the video and hearing those awesome kids recite your poem in both languages.

Weren't those kids great?? I was a little sorry that the Spanish didn't necessarily trip along - interjecting "Franklin Roosevelt" in there made it rough!
