ABOUT THE BOOKS

FRIENDS AND ANEMONES: Ocean Poems for Children, is a fun and informative collection of original poems and art by New England authors and illustrators. Hands join fins in an adventure through kelp forests to meet sea otters and whales. Attend an underwater birthday party! Voyage through tempests to bottom-of-the-ocean volcanos and mysterious creatures in the deep, deep darkness. This book is a valuable ecological and poetry resource for parents as well as librarians and teachers. The Writers' Loft brings together authors and artists from all over New England to collaborate, because writing doesn't have to be a solitary pursuit!

AN ASSORTMENT OF ANIMALS: A Children's Poetry Anthology celebrates the joys of poetry and love of animals for children of all ages. From anteater to vulture, limerick to free verse, and water color to digital drawing, An Assortment of Animals is an all-encompassing introduction to a diverse variety of animals, poetry, and illustration techniques for the young reader and artist.

Undiscovered poets' and illustrators' work sits side by side with never-before-seen work of accomplish authors and artists like Jane Yolen, Josh Funk, and Brian Lies. Poetry is a compelling way for children to experience the art of storytelling through word and art. This anthology takes the reader on a journey from funny to poignant, wistful to thrilling, imaginative to realistic. Through over twenty authors and illustrators, discover new wonders in this joyous collection.
