As we were leaving April and Poetry Month yesterday, we had a very special friend help us celebrate poetry one more time.
Robert Forbes, who just happens to be my favorite poet, stopped by to share and talk poetry with our second graders. As always, it was such great fun.
It is such a special treat to listen as he reads his poems and just as much to see the wonderful illustrations by Ronald Searle that accompany each poem.
The kids also had a chance to ask Robert lots of questions. They had so many really awesome ones this time.
Porter asked him,
Did you play sports when you were young?
And Charli wondered,
Do you ever come to a point where you have trouble writing?
Thank you my friend for Skyping with us and bringing so much happiness to our library and school. Your poems and books will always be our favorites.
