Between home-schooling two young kids, trying to keep up with household chores, and trying to take care of my folks’ health and financial needs (they are both in a nursing home)…I’ve barely had any time to write or send out submissions. In fact, I question how much longer I can keep saying I’m “working from home” when I feel like I’m hardly working at all!
Be that as it may, I actually have some cool news to share, which I’ll likely do next week. (The irony is that this good news took surprisingly little time to materialize – which, considering my aforementioned schedule, is quite a
fortuitous development) Thanks for popping by today, and for more poetry offerings, be sure to visit Bridget Magee at Wee Words for Wee Ones, where she is hosting the Poetry Friday roundup!

Did you know that Radio, Rhythm & Rhyme is one of the TOP 20 children’s poetry blogs, according to FEEDSPOT? That’s right – I’m scratching my head, too! FEEDSPOT is an app that allows you to combine all your favorite news feeds, podcasts, YouTube channels, etc. into ONE newsletter. Be sure to check it out!
I continue adding to my “Wit & Wordplay” videos ! These videos were created for parents and educators (along with their kids) to learn how to write poetry, appreciate it, and have fun with it. From alliteration and iambs to free verse and spine poetry, I’m pretty sure there’s something in these videos you’ll find surprising! You can view them all on my YouTube channel, and if you have young kids looking for something to keep busy with, I also have several downloadable activity sheets at my website.
Ordering personalized signed copies online?
Oh, yes, you can!
Click any of the following covers to order!
Just click the cover of whichever book you want and send the good folks at MainStreet BookEnds in Warner, NH a note requesting the signature and to whom I should make it out to. (alternatively, you can log onto my website and do the same thing) They’ll contact me, I’ll stop by and sign it, and then they’ll ship it! (Plus, you’ll be supporting your local bookseller – and won’t that make you feel good?)
Thank you to everyone for your support!
