The Children's Poet Laureate

It's surely not my habit here at GottaBook to talk all the time about the big or breaking news in the world of children's poetry. (Pause while laughter subsides). (Another pause for the gigglers among you who are continuing).

Anyway, as others have already noted, the Poetry Foundation has named their first ever children's poet laureate... and it is none other than Jack Prelutsky. Why not click here for a few of his thoughts from today?

Right choice? Wrong choice? Frankly, I'm simply happy that there are choices, and that someone, somewhere is encouraging the spread of poetry for children. Not a bad thing at all!
