Go, Bo!

That is my two word/two syllable contribution to poetry about the new White House dog, Bo. But luckily, Kristine O'Connell George, whose poem you'll read here later this month as part of 30 Poets/30 Days, has not only written a better poem and placed it on her website (and links to White House dog poems by Rebecca Kai Dotlich and J. Patrick Lewis) but also has given a poetry writing prompt for kids to use to help celebrate the arrival of a new First Pooch. AND she'll be posting poems kids send in, too.

So head on over and check out Welcome to the White House, Bo!
