Ah, thanks, LW!

Lorie Ann, thanks for the plug-- and for your terrific poems in the book too. Your poem, "Waiting," is one of my favorites-- and kids will love the word GLOOP!

Lorie Ann, thanks for your poems, your post today, and for letting everyone know that e-book versions will be available for Kindles and iPads (and computers) on Sept 1st. 

Right now the book is available only in paperback--but paper is best for browsing back and forth from one theme (or grade) to another.

E-books are terrific when you use your computer with a projector; you can project any page of the book onto a large screen and the whole class can see a poem at the same time. And a teacher could use the Search function in the e-book to type in GLOOP and find your art poem!

I'm proud that one of my poems lives in the same book as yours!
