I've had the pleasure of being in both blog hops and blog tours - and now I know there's a difference.
Hi, I'm Laura Rose and I - er - borrowed Mrs. Garrett's blog for the day.
Because I want you to meet my new friend Addie!
I just met her a few weeks ago and that's her in <========== this book.
Today, I'm going to interview her. You wanna hear?
I was going to write from the perspective of a Kindergartener, but the words that came out were much older sounding. Doesn't matter. I like it:
I mount the plastic saddle,
And pull upon the reigns.
Pump my feet back and forth
To make him go again.
He whinnies as he gallops
A creaky sort of sound
And rattles on his chains a bit
O’er the passing ground.
My body surges forward
Then back again in stride
My lungs are filled with whistled wind
But my chest is filled with pride.
“Whoa” I call and dismount.
My cowboy ride is done.
With one last pat, I’ve got to go.
The recess bell has rung.
Wouldn't it be great if you could just dial 411 and get answers to all your kid lit questions? Kidlit411 comes pretty darn close. Whether you join their Facebook Page, follow their tweets, or check out the website, you will find a wealth of info.
AND it's their birthday! So they are hosting a contest. Now, this is going to be a short blog post, because the birthday bash is almost over. So hurry up and and CHECK IT OUT!
PLUS there's still time for the other ones - HERE and HERE
I write about, with, for, and around kids all day. (Well, maybe I do the dishes too. Sometimes.)
