A Poetic Spring

It seems fitting that April is National Poetry Month. Poetry helps readers and listeners see things in a fresh way during a season when things undergo a renewal. Read poetry with children of all ages, about families, about nature, about the unexpected. For as you share poetry, as Carl Sandburg has said, remember that with poetry you’re stuffing “a backpack of invisible keepsakes.”
