Day 23 + 24

Last night as I lay in the bath daydreaming, I had a feeling I’d forgotten something. That feeling stayed in the back of my mind taunting me until I woke up this morning and realised I’d missed a day of my month of daily blogs challenge. So here’s a double whammy.

Firstly, I wanted to share some poetry books I have recently read because they are all completely awesome for different reasons – and one of the things I love about the writing community is how supportive they are of one another. So here are some fab books, for no other reason than that – they’re fab!

If you’d like to follow any of the authors on Twitter then look for:

@DBertulis (Where Do Wishes Go)
@JoshuaSeigal (Welcome To My Crazy Life)
@JosephACoelho (Poems Aloud)
@moses_brian (Lost Magic)
@MichaelRosenYes (Many Different Kinds of Love)
@WakelingKate (Cloud Soup)

Secondly, here are two brilliant websites for anyone interested in children’s poetry – reading it, writing it, using it as a coaster for your tea (don’t do that!). Poetry Zone (run by Roger Stevens) and The Dirigible Balloon (Jonathan Humble) – who are both hugely passionate about sharing, celebrating and encouraging poetry for children.
