You know, it’s always a joy to spend time with special guests, such as Kate Coombs. Not only is she a brilliant author, poet, and generally delightful individual – the lovely lady is generous, as well. We’re thrilled to have Kate featured as our Author-in-Residence for April, National Poetry Month. And, what’s equally exciting is that some lucky reader is going to be wowed when they win a copy of her book!
That’s right, you can enter for a chance to win a copy of Water Sings Blue by accessing Kate’s blog called Book Aunt. There you’ll find the following directions stated – Since we’re celebrating poetry this month, you can qualify for the giveaway by writing a haiku about an ocean animal or some other maritime topic (like boats) and leaving it in the comments. The winner’s name will be drawn and announced at the end of April.
We ReaderKidZ would be over-the-top elated if one of our readers won Kate’s poetry contest. Sign up today, won’t you? And if you need a bit of help, you can use the excellent Haiku How-to lesson provided by the International Reading Association HERE.
