"The National Council of Teachers of English wishes to recognize and foster excellence in children's poetry by encouraging its publication and by exploring ways to acquaint teachers and children with poetry through such means as publications, programs, and displays. As one means of accomplishing this goal, NCTE established its Award for Excellence in Poetry for Children in 1977 to honor a living American poet for his or her aggregate work for children ages 3–13."
My all-time favorite Lee Bennett Hopkins book is GOOD BOOKS! GOOD TIMES! I also LOVE HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
