Exciting news! Mary Ann Hoberman, one of our family's very favorite poets, has been named the new children's poet laureate.
We love Mary Ann Hoberman's writing. Especially The Seven Silly Eaters, Whose Garden Is It?, and The Llama Who Had No Pajama. That last is an anthology of 100 wonderful poems; the title one is the sweet girl's favorite poem and is also the main reason why she declared last year that Mary Ann Hoberman was her favorite writer. Last spring, we took an opportunity to write to Ms. Hoberman and tell her that; I posted about the lovely reply we received here.
What a great day for children's poetry. We're so excited! Congratulations, Mary Ann Hoberman!
