Poetry For Kids

Poetry for children captures the essence of childhood: the fun, the laughter, the hope, and the inquisitive nature of exploring their world.

Children's poetry makes reading fun, which will ignite a passion for the spoken and written word.

Sometimes children with their fresh eyes looking at the world may be able to see that which an adults eyes pass over. There are many sayings to express this sentiment. One is, "out of the mouths of babes", another coined by a television show is, "kids say the darndest things". We recognize that as adults we have become jaded. We may miss hilarious ironies about the world that our children have to point out to us. If I had to take a guess, I would say that children are in the world for just this purpose.

Children might not be interested in the mechanics and techniques involved in poetry writing. However, there is an effective way to get them interested in poetry. The key is to read them plenty of poetry written with children in mind. Many children's poems feature things that interest children, things they can relate to, like missing the school bus or cafeteria lunches. Funny poems are the best for getting kids motivated to write their own material. If a poem about underwear or bugs makes them laugh, they are likely to develop a love for poetry even at an early age.
