April is National Poetry Month
But that doesn't mean you have to wait,
And read them only part of the year
Too many would accumulate!
 

Here's some titles we recommend
The list is quite diverse
With picture books and collections
Haikus and novels in verse.

 

Take a look at the list and see
If there's anything you'd like to read.
It can be serious or silly
We've got something for you, guaranteed!

 

NOTE: Children read at different levels at different times in their lives. It is up to the child and their parent to determine which of these suggestions are appropriate for them.
