  3. Michelle, thank you for the beautiful poems for Poetry Friday….Denise Levertov is a favorite. And, your golden shovel has such voice. All three poems are such a braid of your love for the kids standing up for each other and for us today. Peace to you as well.

    I am the Manager of The Museum Store at The Louisiana Children’s Museum in New Orleans. A homeschool teacher told me about your book. Can you send me a preview copy so I can see if it fits into our book selections?
