"FOREST HAS A SONG" Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award-Winner Giveaway and Conference Countdown

Only six more days until #LA16SCBWI!

To celebrate, we'll be giving away a copy of Forest Has a Song by Amy Ludwig VanDerwater, illustrated by Robbin Gourley (Clarion)

VanDerwater makes a stunning debut with twenty-six inviting poems leading readers through a vibrant tour of forest-wonders---ferny frondy fiddleheads, a grandfather fossil, a fawn, an owl's first flight. Poetry filled with metaphors, imagery, alliteration and personification show what poetry for children of all ages is about.

To enter, just leave your best question for Amy about the poetry collection in comments below, and I'll choose one winning question to ask Amy at the conference. The author of that winning question will also win a copy of "Forest Has A Song."

Ready to play?

Okay, Go!

Did you have an illustrator in mind when you wrote this? How was the collaborative process?

Do you hope this book inspires children to spend more time in nature?

Your poems have such rich and wonderful word choices! I am wondering if you could tell us how much time you spend visualizing, pondering, being out in nature to get inspiration as compared to actually sitting down and writing. Thank you!
