  1. My favorite poetry books are so numerous that I would fill the boxes and keep going. Right now I am enjoying Every Day Birds by Amy Ludwig Van Derwater with my granddaughter along with Lullaby and Kisses Sweet collected by Lee Bennett Hopkins.

  2. I recently received a book The Best Loved Poems of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis that I really like.

  3. I love poetry in general, but a collection I loved reading my daughters was “Where the Sidewalk Ends” by Shel Silverstein.
