A new poetry e-book for kids, PoetryTagTime, compiled by Janet Wong and Sylvia Vardell, is out just in time for National Poetry Month. It is the first ever electronic-only poetry anthology of new poems by top poets for children (ages 0-8), and available for only .99 cents at the Kindle Store at Amazon.
This collection of 30 new, unpublished connected poems range from the humorous to serious, about tongues, turtles and toenails, in acrostics, quatrains, and free verse written by 30 of our best children's poets. And the "connections" between poems as the poets voice how their poems are interconnected in this game of poetry tag adds another layer of fun and meaning. You'll be able to share brand-new poems and poetry tips with children all month long for pennies a day!
Even if you don't own a Kindle, you can download the free Kindle app for a number of devices, including your Windows or Apple computer, iPad, iPhone, BlackBerry, or Android-powered phone. Also, be sure to check out our web site (PoetryTagTime.com) and companion blog (PoetryTagTime.Blogspot.com) for strategies for sharing each of the 30 poems in the book, rolling out one per day throughout the month of April.
