POETREE on the Indie Next List!

POETREE has been selected for the Spring 2019 Kids’ Indie Next List. It’s such an honor to see this springtime story side-by-side with new books from so many authors and illustrators I’ve admired for years. Beth Seufer Buss from Bookmarks in Winston-Salem NC says, “As an adult who feels disconnected from poetry, I wish there had been more books like this for me to read as a child. I like the combination of poetry and friendship in this tale and the idea of children having their own poetrees!” Click here to see the rest of this season’s list.
