Today's Poetry Palooza poet Eileen Spinelli allows us to look back to when we first hit double digits with her poem, "My Tenth Birthday".
Eileen does an amazing job of taking me back to my 10-year old self, a mere 😲-years ago!
And being one of kindest people on the planet, it won't surprise you to know that Eileen's latest book with Highlights is all about kindness!

Actually, I can think of quite a few 'big ones' in the world that could use some help with kindness and community. Ahem.

Smidgey is well into her teenage years - she is minimum 13-years old.
(She was a rescue and the humane society didn't know how old she was, but we've had her for 13 years...)
Recently she's realized that being of a certain age has it's advantages. (As does sleeping near the TV.)
