Sweet Book Summary:
Reading poetry with your kids is an invaluable exercise that helps to build strong readers and writers. 100 Great Poems for Girls is a great place to get started. The poems vary in length and difficulty and are organized by category. Topics include Nature, Imagination, Inspiration, Animals, Nursery Rhymes, Limericks and Tongue Twisters, and Fun and Nonsense. Readers are introduced to classics by Robert Frost, William Wordsworth, Walt Whitman, and many other well-known poets. They will also find silly entries like "Fuzzy Wuzzy Was a Bear" by Anonymous. The range of the selections, from "Little Miss Muffet" to "The Road Not Taken", should attract readers of different ages and interests. Beyond the educational value, sharing poetry is a gift to pass on from generation to generation so don't miss this opportunity to engage with and inspire young readers. The memories will last a lifetime!
