Robert Heidreder carries the antics of years in the primary classroom into his active poetry presentations. He uses rhythme, rhyme, puppets, dance, movement and stories to entertain and engage children as they play with poetry. They learn poems, see where his ideas come from, how he has students write group poems and see the lively pleasure a poem a day can have. Robert Heidbreder was born near Mississippi River in 1947. In 1970 he moved to Vancouver to pursue his degree in Classical Languages. In 1975, he became a Canadian citizen, and completes his teaching degree at UBC. Soon after he started teaching primary children in Vancouver, he began writing because he wanted the children in his class introduced to a liveliness of language that matched their natural bounce, enegry, imagination, and playfullness. His first book was Don't Eat Spiders, (1985); Drummheller Dinosaur Dance (2004); his latest is Crocodiles Play, published in the fall of 2008. In 2002, he won the Prime Minister's Award for Teaching Excellence and in 2005 retired from teaching after 30 years. His presentation to children in schools and at festivals help keep the child within him alive, awake, laughing and rhyming.

Dont forget about this. It will be tons of fun for the kids!
