The ever-wonderful ReadingRockets.org is again featuring its delightful, creative ideas for teaching poetry and creative writing through making Valentine's Day cards, kindly including my picture book, A String of Hearts. Check out Reading Rockets' February newsletter for all sorts of ideas for helping children love learning and reading: http://support.weta.org/site/MessageViewer?dlv_id=90262&em_id=68703.0
To see its feature on Valentine's Day go directly to: http://www.readingrockets.org/calendar/valentine. Watching the videos reminds me of what a fun day of filming that was. It's a particularly special treat to see our sweet old lab, Raven, listening so attentively to my reading aloud. She was such the patient, gentle soul, even putting up with wearing a garland of hearts. We all miss her! Happy Valentine's Day to everyone, especially those loving labs!
