Yes, it's February already, and yes, I am trying to hurry the winter season out of here. C'mon spring!
One way to speed things along is by celebrating. For such a short month, February sure has a lot of things worth celebrating--like love, presidents, African-American history, pet dental health (I kid you not), bubblegum, and more! We'll be covering some fun celebrations this month here at Kurious Kitty's Kurio Kabinet, starting with today's Groundhog Day!
And, I'm going to celebrate today by announcing that I have a poem being published in a forthcoming anthology for teachers, librarians, and kids. It is titled, appropriately enough, Celebrations. Actually the full title is The Poetry Friday Anthology for Celebrations, compiled by Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong, and published by Pomelo Books. The book is special in that it contains the poems in both English and Spanish. It will be out in time for National Poetry Month, April, and we'll get a copy for the Library as soon as we can!
