If this Bird had Pockets
Amy Ludwig VanDerwater's acclaimed books for children include Read! Read! Read! and Write! Write! Write!, both of which are NCTE Notable Poetry Books. A writing teacher and blogger at The Poem Farm, she lives on an old farm in Western New York with her husband Mark and their dogs, cats, chickens, and bees.
Emma J. Virján is the author-illustrator of the Pig in a Wig Book series, including What This Story Needs is a Pig in a Wig and What This Story Needs is a Hush and a Shush.
“As a child considers possibilities for Poem in Your Pocket Day, a bird outside provides inspiration…the imaginative, whimsical tone should easily resonate with children… throughout this delightful collection, VanDerwater (Read! Read! Read!, 2017) employs various poetic forms and attitudes, which enliven the reading experience, as do the vibrant, cartoon illustrations. Some Poem in Your Pocket Day information is included, and though this is connected to that celebration, this collection also provides an engaging introduction to both poetry and animals.” —Booklist
