Today I am hosting my first book giveaway! I've been fortunate to be a winner on other blog contests, so I'm spreading the love. Plus I want to celebrate fellow blogger Douglas Florian's newest book release, Dinothesaurus!

Here's the scoop:

I am giving away a brand new, hot off the presses copy of Dinothesaurus: Prehistoric Poems and Paintings by author/illustrator Douglas Florian!

What do you need to do you ask? It's easy and fun! I'm a lifelong fan of poetry, so I'm going to ask you to write me a short little ditty.
Please write a haiku (a poem with 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables) or a couplet (a two line poem that rhymes) in the comment section on this post! Any topic!
I will hold this contest open until noon on Saturday the 14th. Then one of my poetry loving kids will pick a name out of a hat.
If you mention my contest on your blog (and tell me about it), I'll put your name in another time!
I'm looking forward to your poems!
