SLC’s Favorite Poetry Books

SLC_PoetryDid you know April is National Poetry Month? Poetry is an often overlooked literary form in the classroom. What better reason to incorporate such an exceptional type of literacy into the classroom than an entire month devoted to its presence? Quality poetry books can be tough to find when perusing the book store’s shelves. We turned to our resident experts – the School Literacy and Culture mentor team – and asked them to share their favorites.

Here is a list of their five top picks:

  • “Where the Sidewalk Ends” by Shel Silverstein
  • “Read-Aloud Rhymes for the Very Young” by Jack Prelutsky
  • “A Pizza the Size of the Sun” by Jack Prelutsky
  • “Color Me a Rhyme” by Jane Yolen
  • “Water Sings Blue” by Kate Coombs

If you are interested in ordering any of these titles, please do so directly from our SLC Amazon site.
