Happy National Poetry Month

Poetry books are popping up like Easter eggs! Since I reviewed Poetry for Kids: Emily Dickinson, Quarto for Kids/MoonDance Press has published three more titles in their Poetry for Kids series. They’ve chosen some wonderful American writers; crossing fingers that the publisher branches out into poets of color, too.

I haven’t read these yet, but I was really impressed by the Emily Dickinson book: the thoughtful selection of poems, the gorgeous art, and the helpful backmatter. If these books are anything like the first, I’d bet any of them will be winners.

Check them out:

Poetry for Kids: Carl Sandburg
Poetry for Kids: Robert Frost
