National Poetry Month has crept up on me this year and I am unprepared. Actually, I'm not unprepared, I just have other things prepared... I started celebrating on my blog in 2009, posting a poem-a-day and reviews of books of poetry for kids. In recent years, I have added reviews of verse novels for all reading levels to the month of celebration. I've got some great new verse novels, books of poetry and poems to share, but I also have a very tall stack of new picture books begging for attention as well as some fantastic middle grade and YA novels. So, National Poetry Month 2014 at books4yourkids.com will be mostly poetry rather than all-poetry-all-the-time.
I hope you will use these links: poem-a-day, poetry and verse novels and all the resources for teachers and parents (including Common Core lesson plans!) at POETS.org to make this a poetry filled month and don't forget -
POEM IN YOUR POCKET DAY
is APRIL 24, 2014!!
