I found this week’s quote on Renee LaTulippe’s blog “No Water River.” Ms. La Tulippe has the most awesome blog on picture books and poetry. I really like her features where she has poets reading their poems on video! I saw this quote in an interview with poet and novelist Irene Latham and I thought it was perfect! To see the complete interview and see Ms. Latham tell her poem “Dolphin Learns to Spin” please click HERE.
“Go out and make your own mistakes. Learn. Live a life worth writing about.”
- Irene Latham

Here’s what it says about the site on The Plumb Tree Blog – “The new Youth Tube site is launched on The plum Tree. We hope to encourage early literacy and children’s creativity”
Right now they are asking for children 12 and under to send art projects in titled “self.” My sister and I are making drawings to send in and I think this is a great way for kids to show and be proud of their work. So all you Creative Kids can also send your work in to be featured on “Youth Tube“!
