Celebrate Polar Week!

Until I wrote a book about Antarctica, I didn't know such a thing as APECS Polar Week existed! But it does, and folks across the globe are celebrating.

Here at Live Your Poem, I am celebrating new members of The Antarctica Explorers Club! Welcome Catherine, Candace, and Hunter! Here's what I got in the mail:

I love learning what poems students most respond to! Candace is the first person to mention "Flora in a Frozen Land." Yay!

I love the "nuzzle" in this poem. :)

... when I go to Antarctica, I want to look for a cute penguin, too! (Apparently they are not hard to find and are very curious about we humans.)

I love how Hunter mentions the amazing Emperor Penguin fathers. What a winter they endure.. and all the while keeping the egg warm. Love that drawing, too.

Isn't that fabulous?! Thank you, Mrs. Flynn. :) In return, I am sending each a membership button and a signed bookmark. I invite you to join, too! Simply visit my website and download the form. Happy Polar Week!


  1. Irene, thank you so much for featuring Candace & Hunter's work! I know they'll be thrilled. Now we are loving the poems in Fresh Delicious. Maybe we'll be sending along some fruit & veggie poems soon! :-) Thank you again for everything!

  2. "I live on ice in a nest of stones." WOW. Candace is a poet in her bones. Thanks for the post. :-)
