Fifth grade students have been assigned by Ms. Russell to read a book of poetry next month. If you need help finding a good book, try the following:
- Browse in the 811 (poetry) section of the school or public library
- Words to Share: A Bibliography of Poetry for Children and Teens
- Poetry Month Booklist
- KidsPage Poetry Booklist at KCLS
- TeenZone Poetry Booklist at KCLS
A wonderful book to check out, my very favorite personal guide to enjoying poetry, is Immersed in Verse: An Informative, Slightly Irreverent & Totally Tremendous Guide to Living the Poet's Life by Alan Wolf and Tuesday Mourning. Full of advice, examples and humor this book will forever enhance your experiences with poetry.
