A couple months ago my 2nd grader brought home the book Pizza, Pigs, and Poetry, How to Write a Poem from our school library.
At first glance I thought “what a silly book, why would he pick this!” But as we read, laughed and finished the book we soon realized how fun poetry can be to read and write. And, much to our surprise it has a chapter of “PoemStarts to get you Started” at the end of the book.
When I was young I had a fondness for poetry, I loved to write and rhyme.
We found these titles as well for National Poetry Month.
