What I've learned about Poems






Children's poems has always been an interest of mine. I can't say I've had an interest in them as far back as high school, college maybe, but I'd say more recently to be honest. I think it started to really take root when I started having children of my own.

I always wanted my boys to have a strong love for reading, and having a son who isn't fond of reading, I though it would be fun to spice things up with poems. There are so many wonderful poems out there for kids. Let's face it Shel Silverstein is just the icing on the cake.

In my endeavor to learn as much as I can about poems and writing picture books in verse I stumbled on some really great authors and bloggers and thought I'd share some of their links with you.

http://poetryforchildren.blogspot.com/ is a great site
http://readwritepoem.org/ is another one
http://readwritepoem.org/
and then there is Susanna Leonard Hall who's link you can always find on my side board.
There are also so many more, and  don't worry in the next few weeks I plan on covering some other great sites.

let me know if there are sites that you frequent. I'd love to add them to the list.-

  2. These are great links. I belong to a group where two of the writers are especially interested in writing poetry for kids. I'll pass these links along to them. I came to your blog via Catherine A. Winn's blog. I'll be back for sure.
