Put your child in MORE BEARS!

MORE BEARS! Create Your Own Story Book

MORE BEARS! is now available in a special customizable hardcover edition from Put Me In the Story.

MORE BEARS! was written to be read (and yelled!) out loud. This delightfully silly, personalized story will have your child calling out “More Bears!” within the first few pages.  What’s even more exciting is that your son or daughter’s photo and name will appear throughout the ENTIRE story! This interactive book will have your kid eager for reading as well as for “More Bears!” Put Me In The Story allows you to quickly create your own personalized book with your child’s name, photo, and a personal dedication page.

Click here to tour the book and see what it will look like with your child’s photo and name incorporated into the story.

Xbox, Xbox,
you’re the one for me.
I also love my 3DS
and my Nintendo Wii.

GameCube, GameBoy,
Apple iPod Touch.
I never thought that I would ever
be in love this much.

Pac-Man, Sonic,
Mario, and Link.
Your names are etched inside my mind
in everlasting ink.

Run, jump, flip, hang,
double-jump, and climb.
That’s all I want to do
with every second of my time.

This is true love.
Yes, it’s plain to see.
Xbox, Xbox,
will you marry me?

Kenn Nesbitt is the New Children’s Poet Laureate

Children's Poet Laureate, Kenn Nesbitt
On June 10, 2013, the Poetry Foundation announced that I will serve as the next Children’s Poet Laureate from now until June, 2015. I’m honored to accept this award and to be able to use this platform to help advance children’s poetry for the next two years. Over the coming months, I plan to announce new initiatives to help expose more kids throughout the U.S. and around the world to the joys of reading and writing poetry.

Visit the Poetry Foundation website to learn more about the Children’s Poet Laureate award. You can also read their press release announcing the new Children’s Poet Laureate, and you can read an interview I gave to outgoing Children’s Poet Laureate J. Patrick Lewis.

I look forward to the next couple of years of creating, sharing, and teaching poetry, and of spreading the art of poetry to kids everywhere.
