I am at a school visit today talking books and writing with elementary students, which is a wonderful way to spend a Friday! But I did want to share a link to a post I wrote earlier this week over at Smack Dab in the Middle entitled One Hope for Writers.
And click here to read about my 2017 One Little Word.
Also, other good news: FRESH DELICIOUS was selected as a Cybils finalist for poetry along with some other great titles:

When I realized I'd read all but two, I logged in to put a hold on those books at my library. Interesting thing: our library system has just over 20 libraries, and there were at least a dozen copies of GUESS WHO, HAIKU by Deanna Caswell, illus. by Bob Shea (Abrams Appleseed) in the system! Yay for poetry!
This is an adorable, accessible book, perfect for our youngest listeners. I like how it's interactive -- not just haiku, but a guess who? game. Poetry for wee ones should be fun, and this book is! And who doesn't love farm animals?
I like this one, offered up by the cow:
busy buzzing in the field
black and yellow stripes
Can you guess who from her haiku?
- Deanna Caswell
Wishing everyone a lovely day and weekend. xo
