Poem in SPIDER

I just heard from SPIDER today that they'll be publishing my poem, "Thanks to Whom?" I submitted the poem to CRICKET, which is for age 9-14, but I guess they thought it worked for the younger age 6-9 reader that SPIDER is geared to. I'm happy either way! (This is the second poem of mine that SPIDER has taken. I've also had poems published in LADYBUG and CRICKET).
