World Rat Day:Poems About Real Holidays You've Never Heard Of

J. Patrick Lewis

These wonderfully wacky poems celebrate the odd holidays that are not on our standard calendar: Worm Day (March 15), World Rat Day (April 4), National Skunk Day (June 14), Pink Flamingo Day (June 23), and Chocolate-Covered Anything Day (Dec. 16) are a few of the featured days. Children’s Poet Laureate J. Patrick Lewis has created superb poetry infused with silliness and humor. Anna Raff’s watercolor illustrations add playful images that complement the verses. Kids will love this information - if only they could have these days as holidays from school! Ages 5-9
