Poetry Smiles to You. Happy Poetry Month
Happy Poetry Month. Paul is one of my favorite poets! I love the books he writes for children.
This book, The Place My Words Are Working For, is a lovely book that talks about poets and features a couple of each of their poems. Naomi Shihab Nye and Myra Cohen Livingston, are two of my favorites featured! Read this book with kids and talk about their lives as poets and writers. Kids can reflect on their writing lives too!
This poetry book was recommended by Paul on his website. It looks beautiful.
Read Paul's website!
Find the poets that inspire your Literary Family! Read them, find out about the poets' lives, and write a little together! Enjoy poetry month! Discover a new poem, discover a new poet.
