“A Dino at A Writer’s Playground” by Linda Martin Andersen
Yesterday, I visited Laura Purdie Salas’ blog, one of my new favorite poetry sites. Laura was sharing about the recent Children’s Book Festival in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, where she presented.
When I saw the photograph she had taken, I felt like I was looking at a playground equipment catalog, perfect for “A Writer’s Playground.” I believe every playground would boast ownership of a dinosaur. Don’t you? I know I would purchase one except I have a small equipment budget. Not to be outdone, I thought I’d reblog the dinosaur photograph Laura posted. Take a look here:
Now imagine the dinosaur in the photograph being stationed at “A Writer’s Playground.” Instant dino and at no cost to me. Thanks Laura.
How can I ever repay her? I’m not sure I can, but maybe you can by viewing her blog. Enjoy Laura’s poem of 15 words or less. I know I did. While you’re there, check out her great books.
Another word about Laura’s photo. It was taken at Bookworm Gardens. Like the name? Wouldn’t it make a perfect garden spot at “A Writer’s Playground?” Maybe I can reblog the Bookworm Gardens another time. For now, I’ll consider a virtual trip there. Want to join me? http://www.bookwormgardens.org/
What are your thoughts? Where would you like to take a virtual trip? What equipment would you suggest for “A Writer’s Playground?”
Thanks for visiting. I hope you’ll leave a comment. Come again and bring a friend.
