Poetry books for children are one of those rich resources that I think parents often overlook.
Poetry may seem simple, but it touches us on an emotional level.
I’m offering books to introduce your children to poetry (beyond just rhyming children’s books) to inspire your child and expand their horizons.
Be sure to check out our other book lists for kids!
You can find these poetry books for children at your local library or purchase through the affiliate links provided for your convenience.
Books of Poetry to Read with your Young Children
My regular readers know how much I love to give books as gifts.
One year, I gave one of my nieces (who wasn’t a big fan of reading at the time) a copy of Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends.
A true classic!
Months after giving the gift, her mom told me that they were packing for a vacation and my niece had snuck in the book into her suitcase.
Poetry can speak to children on so many levels… sometimes even more than a story.
Poetry Unit Study
In addition to offering recommendations of poetry books for children that kids will love and learn from, I’ve teamed up with some fellow bloggers to offer you homeschool and classroom unit study resources about poetry!
