Thanks to Poet Joy Acey for the Shout-Out

Joy Acey had some fun with the new Poetry Friday Anthology, and with my poem, "Snack Rules." Click here to see what resulted when she mis-read the title, then followed that wondering and pondering into a new poem of her own. (And you might check out her follow-up post exploring rhythm.)

Joy has two fun poems in the anthology as well. I've had the privilege of meeting Joy at the two Higlights Founders Worskhops in poetry I've attended. She's an enthusiastic voice for children's poetry!

    Hey, thanks Robyn,
    I feel so privileged to be included in THE POETRY FRIDAY ANTHOLOGY along with your two excellent poems, and so many others. Your SNACK RULES will forever be a special poem for me.
    I really hope teachers enjoy the book and find inspiration for sharing poetry with children through it.
    I'm looking forward to your post on this Friday.
