NPM day #6

I’m backtracking to “Firefly July” (collected by Paul B. Janeczko and illustrated by Melissa Sweet) for today’s poem by William Carlos Williams because it is the perfect segue for tomorrow’s poem as well.  This poem is perhaps one of William Carlos Williams most anthologized poems and it is usually picked for children.  But I LOVE the chicken and everything else about the illustration paired with it by Melissa Sweet.
