I am ecstatic to make my poetry debut in FRIENDS AND ANEMONES: Ocean Poems for Children. It is a collection of illustrated poems celebrating the beauty of the ocean and highlighting our collaborative responsibility as ocean protectors.
Readers young and old will be enchanted by 70 pages of whimsical poems and riddles by well-known authors such as Peter Reynolds, Jane Yolen, Kip Wilson, Lynda Mullaly Hunt, Josh Funk, Matt Forrest Esenwine, as well as emerging New England authors and illustrators, all members of The Writers' Loft in Sherborn, MA.
FRIENDS AND ANEMONES contains a variety of different poetic styles, which makes this anthology a perfect text for the language arts classroom. It is also filled with fascinating STEM facts which slip right into life-science lessons. But mostly it is simple, sometimes-silly, sensational reading fun.
The Writers' Loft partnered with the Rozalia Project, a non-profit dedicated to restore and protect our oceans. All revenue of the first months sales will be donated to the Rozalia Project.
Books may be ordered at these vendors, and will soon be on the shelves of local independent bookstores:
