3 Books to Introduce Poetry to Your Children

If you want to get your children to love words and reading, even if they haven't shown a lot of interest in the past, try bringing a little poetry into your home. Here are three of our personal favorites.

Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson. We recently read a great review of this classic atVintage Kids' Books My Kid Loves.

Moon, Have You Met My Mother by Karla Kuskin. We own this book and love it for its simple, humorous verses that are easy enough for a very small child to grasp.

Where the Sidewalk Ends. How can we leave this one out? Our first grade teacher used to read this one to us often and it had every child running to the school library to take out Shel Silverstein's work.
