    these are lucky kids to have poetry introduced to them at such a young age. and not only introduced-- but emphasized! great!

    When raising our children we tried to stay "age appropriate", whatever that means. We read books and poetry over and over, stopping to answer questions and never baby talking to them. Although our styles of teaching them were different we always backed each other 100% even if we disagreed privately.Of course the end result was the two most fabulous,wonderful, put together, mature, intelligent, etc, yada,yada,yada, well, you get the picture.

    A great article. I wished I had been introduced to poetry at a young age. These children are truly lucky!

    Yes, it's easy to see that you both would include the love of poetry in teaching your children. It's difficult not too when you respect the power of the written word as much as you.

    I think Dr. Seuss did an incredible wealth of good in bringing it into the mainstream and mainstay of our homes and hearts.

    I loved the example by the Iranian poet. I'm certainly going to read more by and about her.

    Hi, schula. As you've recently discovered, it's never to late to enjoy reading or writing when it comes to poetry.
