Poems, Poems Everywhere!
Established by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month is celebrated every April. It’s a time when schools, libraries, publishers, booksellers, poets, and readers from across the country celebrate poetry and promote its importance in our culture and society.
Need a few suggestions? Check out our poetry offerings, including Nest, Nook & Cranny by Susan Blackaby, illustrated by Jamie Hogan, winner of the 2011 Lion and the Unicorn Award for Excellence in North American Poetry. From snappy verse to rhyming text, we have something for every age level, classroom, and story hour.
