The Haiku Foundation Libraries and Book of the Week

THF Celebration Fortnight – Day 8 post, by Jim Kacian, honors The Haiku Foundation hard copy and digital libraries.  These celebration posts include a lot of information.

Garry Eaton is the Digital Librarian at The Haiku Foundation.

This year I wrote these lesson plans for all ages, that help parents, teachers, and others discover the resources at THF.  Thanks to Jim Kacian for designing and publishing the new lessons at The Haiku Foundation Education Resources.

Quiet Christmas Poetry, by contrast, is a large print book.  I still remember sharing with an older relative in 2014, and my aunt said, “Oh, I can read this.”  Karl and I created this book from my Christmas site.  I am grateful for different books, which seem to work well at different times.
