April is National Poetry Month! I am a true lover of poetry. My mom says when I was little I had a fascination with certain words, especially odd sounding ones, and loved to sit in her lap and listen to poems read aloud. Do you have a favourite poem? As a kid I loved “Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout” by Shel Silverstein. Nowadays I devour contemporary love poems, with those by Ada Limón among my favourite. I’m sure kids will discover many future favourites in these 2019 poetry collections.
