Join the September Read & Romp Roundup!



I returned from Barnes & Noble a few hours ago with a stack of picture books and chapter books I'm going to take with me tomorrow to the National Book Festival in Washington, DC. I've removed a stack of older picture books from our shelves and am going to take those with me as well. Eilleen Spinelli, Anna Dewdny, Judy Sierra, and Marc Brown are among the picture book authors and illustrators I am hoping to meet and have sign my books. I am so excited!

Since books are on my mind tonight, I thought it would be a good time to put out my monthly call for submissions to the Read & Romp Roundup. I just realized that all the authors I mentioned above write in rhyme, so I guess poetry is on my mind, too!

If you have a recent (or even not so recent) blog post related to picture books or children's poetry AND dance, yoga, or another form of movement, leave your link in a comment on this post. I'll round up all the links and post about them together on my blog in a few weeks. 

Submissions are open until Sunday, September 30, 2012.

In case you didn't see it, I also have a giveaway going on through September 30, 2012. Dance educator Liz Vacco is giving away a copy of her Petite Feet DVD for kids. You can hear how Liz uses storytelling to teach dance, learn more about the DVD, and enter the giveaway here. Have a wonderful weekend!

    I didn't get to go to the National Book Festival this year, but I did go last year, it was great. I've met Mrs. Spinelli a couple of times, she is SO nice! :)

    1. Thanks, Erik. I'm so glad you decided to join the roundup! And I am so jealous you got to meet Mrs. Spinelli. I had to go home from the National Book Festival before I had the chance to meet her. I am going to have to find another way! :)

  4. Hi Kerry,

    This month I (finally) got around to reviewing Angelina Ballerina. It's one of my all-time favorite picture books about dance. I think my mother must have gotten it for me when I first started dance classes. http://picturebookaday.blogspot.com/2012/09/book-255-angelina-ballerina-by.html

    As always, thank you! I so appreciate your round-ups!
    -Amy
