Book Hunters in Brief #122: Take Your Child to Work Day

Next Thursday is Take Your Child to Work Day, and Book Hunters encourages you, if at all possible, to participate. "But," you say, "my job isn't very exciting." Maybe not to you, but to your kid, it is. It takes up a big part of your day and it represents a big part of who you are, and your child will be excited to get to share it with you.

Book Hunters in Brief #120: Children's Poetry for National Poetry Month

Not only is it a fairly inarguable fact that children and young adults write the best poetry, they are also--for many of the same reasons--the best readers of poetry. In both cases, their abilities have to do with an intuitive sense of possibilities: in language, in imagination, in life and the world around them. It is also a fairly inarguable fact that the world would be a better, or at least more interesting, place if more of us could carry a child's poetic sensibility into adulthood. We just don't, for many, probably valid, reasons. Heck, most kids who grow up to be poets can't even manage it.
