April is poetry month. To celebrate I will post one children's poem a day for 30 days straight. Each poem will let you know just what book you can find it in. By the end of the month, I will have given you a list of 30, count 'em 30, books of children's poetry. No foolin'.
It's raining cats,
With felines stacked.
One, two, and three--
They're purring down
On top of me.
from Raining Cats and Dogs, written by Jane Yolen; illustrated by Jane Street. Harcourt, 1993.
