A Child's Introduction to Poetry (Revised and Updated)

Listen While You Learn About the Magic Words That Have Moved Mountains, Won Battles, and Made Us Laugh and Cry

This delightful, interactive journey through the history of the world’s poetry now includes a removable poster and access to downloadable audio, allowing kids to listen and learn as they experience the magic of the spoken word.

Poetry can be fun — especially when we can read it, hear it, and discover its many delights. A Child’s Introduction to Poetry joyously introduces kids (and parents) to the greatest poets in history — from Homer and Shakespeare to Langston Hughes and Maya Angelou — and provides excellent examples of their work and commentary on what makes it so special and everlasting. The book covers every style of poem, from epics and odes, to nonsense verse and haikus, and is filled with examples of each one.

This multimedia package encourages children to listen, read, and learn, and opens the door to a lifetime of appreciation of a rich literary tradition. Also included is a removable, fold-out poster of “Jabberwocky” by Lewis Carroll, one of history’s most iconic poems.
