Poetry expert Vardell shows how librarians, teachers, and others can introduce children, ages 5 to 12, to the world of poetry in a way that’s meaningful, participatory, and fun. The book offers practical strategies for reading aloud and teaching poetry in both formal and informal situations; details best practices gleaned from years in the field, with numerous suggestions that cross the curriculum from literature to science and math; and includes expanded lists of poems, poet profiles, book-poetry pairings, and other tools useful for programming and collection development.
