To celebrate The Letterbox Cat (Scholastic, out now) and A Treasury of NZ Poems for Children (Random House, out Oct 3rd), Carole Beu invited me to The Book Show. Aimee and Neo read poems and Carole and I chatted about the books, Poetry Box and my Hot Spot Poetry Tour of NZ.
Aimee and Neo go to Cornwall Park District School and read some poems. They got their mics on, stood against the green backdrop and recited their poems beautifully. I was so proud of them.
Afterwards we went to a cafe for hot chocolate and talked about books and poems and being on TV.
It was a great morning and I especially loved talking with Carole about poetry for and by children.
