I’m a huge believer in poetry. Poetry for life, poetry for love, poetry to save the world, and so forth.
And I am definitely a believer that kids should have poetry, too.
Here are just a few of our anthologies from around the house. I really really love for beginner poets is Nesbitt’s One Minute till Bedtime. These poems could be read anytime, not just before bed, and are loved by all ages! Also a big fan of Firefly July, for the poems but also the gorgeous illustrations.
