Woolly Bear fun in Hinesburg went well!

carpenter-carse-2A good turn-out at the Carpenter Carse Library in Hinesburg involved a dozen hard-working kids and family members who actively listened to the book, asked me good questions, then in the workshop came up with great poems and drew beautiful illustrations.  One participant made four vivid poems and lovely line illustrations!




With his permission, my son Newt shares his poem from the workshop:

Birds In The Rain

birds on power lines

highway below, grey sky above

huddle in the rain


Up next!  Brownell Library in Essex Junction on November 16 at 3:30 pm … in this workshop we will be doing a reading/signing and a craft!
