Ever wonder which Harry Potter character most closely matches your own personality type? Of course you have. I bet your Facebook profile says you went to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry too. Do I know you, or do I know you? Just take the Myers-Briggs personalty assessment, see which character you are (after altering your answers to get the character you want to be), then change your profile picture to a picture of that character and personality description. Me? I’m a BAMF. “That isn’t even a real personality.” *flips table, punches hole through wall* OH NO?!

Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer hinted to Wall Street that the studio isn’t ready to roll the credits on its “Hunger Games” and “Twilight” franchises.

Poetry, like other forms of literature, can also be entertaining, beautiful, and meaningful. Kids are usually immediately drawn to the rhythm and rhyme of poetry. Much like diversity, poetry can provide a mirror for us to see ourselves, and a window into others’ experiences, to help us understand the lives and perspectives of different people.
Here are more than 20 diverse poetry picture books to explore with kids during National Poetry Month and beyond. Enjoy!
We’re past National Poetry Month but a good round-up of diverse poetry picture books is always timely.
When we step into the pages of a book, something happens.
We leave the borders of the self, and enter, for a few magical moments, into the minds of others, human, animal or otherwise. We do not just read about Dorothy’s trip to see the Wizard — we become Dorothy, red heels and all.
Your feel-good look at how reading lets us live 1000 lives.
