It’s 16 years since the Academy of American Poets designated April as National Poetry Month. To celebrate, we invite you to read three of our fun rhyming books in full: I’m Really Not Tired, That Cat Can’t Stay, and I Always, ALWAYS Get My Way.
Also preview our upcoming book Victricia Malicia: Book-Loving Buccaneer, which washes ashore in June. But beware: this rollicking, frolicking, seafaring rhyme might tangle your tongue into knots the first time!
If you enjoyed these books, they are available through your local or online bookseller, or via the links on our site.

Beautifully written and tenderly illustrated, “Pobble’s Way” eavesdrops on an imaginative dialogue just before bedtime between a loving father and daughter in a still winter woods setting that has many hidden animal friends. “Pobble’s Way” is a great bedtime story book, especially matched to fathers and daughters. The wise, imaginative comments of the animals about Pobble’s lost pink mitten will linger sleepily in the dreamings of many children.
