Poetry — Birthdays, Alligator Pie and Detestable Vegetables

What do these three topics have in common? Well, they are all covered in the poetry section in the children's department. We have poems on all different kinds of subjects from baseball to ice cream to best friends. Not only do our poetry books cover all kinds of topics, but there are many that are very funny to read. When you feel like a few giggles check out Exploding Gravy or Oh, No! Where are my Pants? You'll find these books in the J800 section in the Children's Department, or a librarian can direct you right to the poetry books. They're also easy to find this month on our octagon book display. So check out our awesome poetry section where the reading is easy, and fun.
