I learned a lot while writing Paw Learning Mazes. I learned about egrets and pawpaw trees. The front cover of Paw Learning Mazes has a picture of an egret. Yes, I took this picture. The poem about egrets is "A STEM Dream about an Egret"; there's also a maze poem version of this poem in Paw Learning Mazes.
I also learned about pawpaw trees. Yes, these are real trees. They are small trees with fruit that tastes a little bit like bananas. The fruit is usually ripe in September and October. The poem that references pawpaw trees is "Spying on the Paws of Life"; there's also a maze poem version of this poem.
