By a raise of hands, how many of you like poetry? Not many, I see. Now a tougher question, how many of your children like poetry? Why do children tend to shy away from poetry. After all, children should love poetry, it is short and right to the point. It is also a little confusing to read, to get the right pronunciation can be a battle in itself. Some of these poems make absolutely no sense to any one except for the person who wrote it. Once kids outgrow nursery rhymes, that is usually the end of poetry for them. It is up to us adults to make sure that poetry stays a part of our childs regular reading as they mature into avid readers.
