For National Poetry Month, which begins tomorrow, here’s a spine poem half-stolen from James Herriot’s book series, whose titles are based on this hymm (Every Living Thing, the 5th book in the series was written when Herriot ran out of lines but still had more to say).
Children’s Literatureis the purpose of this blog. We mainly focus on middle grade books aimed at 8-12 year olds, but jaw-dropping YA and picture books are also fair game.
