I hope you’ve been enjoying my Letters to Mother Goose poetry series! Thirteen of Mother Goose’s characters have written a poem to Mother Goose in answer to her wish upon a star. This week, Mother Goose replies to all her characters in one final poem of the series. As a reminder, this was the wish that started it all:
Twinkle, twinkle, little star. I wonder how my children are. Up above the world so bright, if I may, I wish they'd write...
MOTHER GOOSE replies to her characters!

You’re invited to a magical slumber party with all your nursery rhyme friends! Join Little Bo-Peep, Georgie Porgie, Miss Muffit, the cow that jumped over the moon, and all their pals as they march merrily toward Mother Goose’s house for a cozy slumber party full of stories. And after they are all tucked in continue to the back of the book and find a section with your favorite nursery rhymes.

THANKS FOR POPPING IN
This was a fun summer project for me and hopefully for you too! I’ve heard from some teachers and parents who have used or are planning to use this series as a writing prompt in their lesson plans! Stay tuned for next week’s post, I’ll be going back to writing poems for adults. I have some fun poetry forms I’ve been wanting to try.
