Rhyming Children's Poems

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.

    The Magic Of Books

    through a mountain

    The child knows best...
    A book's a story waiting to be read
    Taking one to where their feet never tread
    Be it fact or fiction whatever's told
    It's a mystery about to unfold.

  4. I Wish

    I wish that spinach tasted like chocolate,
    Instead of tasting sour and bitter.
    I wish that candy bars were loaded with nutrition,
    So that eating as many as I like would make me even fitter.

    I am quite certain that they exist.

    So I know they’re living somewhere in our midst.
