April is National Poetry Month, a celebration of the writing craft that often speaks most directly to the heart and soul of life.
Poetry is language at its most distilled and most powerful. – Rita Dove
There are plenty of ways for children and parents (and aunts and uncles!) to take part in the celebration – from reading and writing poetry together to attending local readings and events. And don’t forget, April 21st is Poem in Your Pocket Day!
Here are just a few books of poetry that you might like to try reading with your kids.
