World Rat Day: J. Patrick Lewis

Looking for that perfect poem to celebrate National Skunk Day?  What about National Sloth Day?  Look no further.  Thanks to current Children's Poet Laureate J. Patrick Lewis these holidays, and others, will not go uncelbrated any longer.  You can celebrate Bulldogs Are Beautiful Day on April 24th with a lovely poem about the bulldog, "The sumo of canines".  Kids will love these holidays, rarely celebrated, and be inspired to research other holidays and write poems to commerate those holidays as well.
