Raven Howell’s Spinning Circles now available
Raven Howell, a three-time recipient of a Letter of Merit for children’s poetry from the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, has released a new collection, Spinning Circles: Action Poems. The Cold Spring resident’s poems have appeared in popular children’s magazines such as Cricket, Ladybug and Highlights for Children.
The 22 poems in Spinning Circles provide a tool for parents, teachers and caregivers to share the zing and spark of kicking a ball, clapping hands, leap frogging or finger painting. Among children, Howell says she hopes the compilation will inspire tumbling, stretching, dashing, skipping, stacking and gliding.
Spinning Circles can be ordered in hardcover, paperback or Kindle editions at amazon.com. Howell’s first collection, Dozy Poems, Cozy Days: Poems to Calm an Active Child, is also available.
