Poem Share #19 : Erin Dealey Presents "The Book Report."


POEM SHARE: Children's poets from across the county presenting their favorite poems for Poetry Month and beyond!

Enjoy this Poem Share by children's author Erin Dealey as she presents her poem "The Book Report." This rollicking two-voice poem is a conversation between the author of a book and a reader who procrastinates over completing a book report on that book.

Erin is also the author of DEAR EARTH...FROM YOUR FRIENDS IN ROOM FIVE, a clever environmental story told through an exchange of letters between a classroom of children and the earth.
