The picture book Things To Do inspires us to do something crafty. This Poetry Mobile craft plays with the fluidity, motion and magic of poems in a concreted way and makes a beautiful decoration. It’s a perfect way to bring language and art together with children of any age.
Author Elaine Magliaro describes her process for narrowing down the numerous poems she wanted to include in THINGS TO DO.
April is National Poetry Month. It’s a great time to share poetry that children will want to read all year long. Handing a child a book of poems about their favorite topic helps foster a love of poetry. Whether they are obsessed with dinosaurs or dogs, can’t get enough of Greek mythology or music, love sports or school, there’s a book of poetry for them.
