Express Yourself: Poetry Activities for Kids

It’s hard to believe that we are already a full week into April! April is one of my favorite months for many reasons, one of them being National Poetry Month. Reading poetry is one of my favorite past times, but writing poetry is an absolute favorite way for me to express myself and reflect on my thoughts.  As a kid, I was always busily scribbling away poems in a notebook, and it was a huge game changer when I discovered that poems don’t have to rhyme!

Staff Picks: 2016 Best Books for Kids and Teens

This is the time of year when I dig into “best of the year” lists. Whether it’s to compare, catch up, or to discover a missed gem, it’s a great way to reflect on the good things that happened in 2016.  As a super-fan of books for kids and teens I always want to find out and share out what’s great.  I’ve gathered some great recommendations from the best resource around, Kitsap Regional Library staff, and included professional book critic’s lists of the year too. Cheers to this year’s best books for kids and teens!
