Before that I professedcollege economics for thirty years.Q: What place does poetry occupy in literature, particularly for children?</p><p>A: Poetry predates books, predates the alphabet. It is the path through which children first learnlanguagesongs, nursery rhymes. Poetry ought to be part of every childs everyday experience. If somepeople say they dont need poetry, bully for them. But thats not an argument for keeping poetry fromchildren in the first place. I like to think that poetry is a blind date with enchantment.Q: What is your usual writing process?</p><p>A:The eternal question: Where does a poet get his ideas? I believe they rise, after a few hours, through the bottom</p><p>of a chair. Seriously, you must be willing to remove yourself from the world for long periods of timein my case,seven days a week. Its a lonely business, but its also the most satisfying I can think of. To paraphrase ThomasEdison, writing is only ten percent inspiration and ninety percent perspiration. If I have written a dozen words atthe end of a day in a way no one else has ever written them, I count myself a lucky man. J. Patrick Lewis</p><p>A Conversation with J. Patrick Lewis</p><p>Anthologies I create are the kinds of volumes I had access to while teaching elementary grades. I have alwaysaffirmed that poetry should be shared every daymeshing with every area of the curriculum. To spark a love of poetry,to bring poetry into childrens lives in a meaningful, unforced way is one of the best gifts we can give.</p><p>Reading, writing, collecting, and sharing poetry is my passion. The power of poetry forever mystifies me, for so much can besaid with few words and lines. I hope you enjoy my collections as much as I love bringing them to you. Happy poetry-ing!</p><p>Lee Bennett Hopkins, Recipient of the NCTE Award for Excellence in Poetry for Children</p><p>FromLee Bennett Hopkins:</p><p>Sharer of Poetry</p><p>2</p><p>stration 2009 Serge Bloch</p></li><li><p>8/12/2019 3079 Poetry Brochure Lores 3-08</p><p> 3/8</p></li><li><p>8/12/2019 3079 Poetry Brochure Lores 3-08</p><p> 4/8</p></li><li><p>8/12/2019 3079 Poetry Brochure Lores 3-08</p><p> 5/8</p><p>Poetry with PicturesFrom Photographer Charles R. Smith Jr.: Capturing</p><p>Langston Hughess My PeopleThrough Pictures</p><p>How do you translate words into pictures? That was thechallenge when I decided to illustrate Langston Hughessclassic poem, My People. Who should be the people in thebook? Old? Young? Black? White? Everyone? What should thephotos look like? Serious? Playful? Head shots? Full-body shots?</p><p>At just thirty-three words total, the poem is astudy in simplicity, which attracted me to it inthe first place. Langston wrote the poem tocelebrate the pride he had for his black brothersand sisters in the late 1920s when blackswere not acknowledged much in societyat that time.</p><p>To me, the words celebrate black peopleof differing shades and age, so I wanted</p><p>to show skin color as bright as the sun and as dark as the night; I wanted to showthe newness of a newborn smile and the wisdom of wrinkled skin. But,more than anything, I simply wanted to show that like any other groupof people, black people come in all shapes, sizes, shades, and age,and that each of us is unique. Charles R. Smith Jr.</p><p>One of the best things about my childhood was nothaving to do it alone. From day one, I had my twinsister, Robin, at my side the ideal accessory for a shykid. Together, we smiled atthe good and frowned at the</p><p>bad, studied ants and madedoll clothes out of Kleenex.Today, when I write a poemfor kids, I try to go backto those days in my mind.I especially remember thethings that made me laugh andhow, every day, the world felt new.</p><p>Deborah Ruddell</p><p>A poem is a word picture that comes tolife in the readers head AND heart. Myreading in elementary school sometimesgot me into trouble. I preferred finishinga book instead of doing my homework.[Later in life] I was still reading books,only now to my children. We had two sons and two daughteso you can imagine that our house was always busy. . . The </p><p>quiet moments came after supper when everyone was readybed. Then we would sit, so close our skins touched, and reatogether. Those peaceful, cozy times inspired me to write bthat other adults and children could share.

After</p><p>Mathematickles!That no longer happened. I like to set a concept on itshead, blast open genres and combine elements and that arent normally</p><p>mixed together, such as math and poetry or counting and birdsongs.
