Poetry is beautiful, captivating and (for a lot of us) a little intimidating, right? Our goal with this episode is to show you how simple and delightful sharing poetry with your kids can be.

My guest today says we can’t force poetry, but we can share it naturally… and that just might be the key to helping our kids develop a lifelong love.

If you want to help your kids fall in love with beautiful language, there’s no better (or simpler) way to start than with a poem.

Don’t miss our booklist of favorite poetry to read aloud—it’s a good one! Scroll down to see the clickable list’s book covers, or pop your email in below to get the printable version.

Quotes to remember:

“We really hamstring ourselves when we think poetry’s got to be serious, exalted, or that we’ve got to ‘teach’ it.” – Sally Thomas

“Memorized poems are a tiny bit of beauty tucked into your pocket. Your kids can pull it out anytime and look at it.”  – Sarah Mackenzie

“A lot of people are afraid to trust the surface of the poem, because they’ve been taught that it’s just a mask for something else—that you haven’t really ‘understood’ the poem until you’ve taken the mask off. But it’s not like you’ve missed the point. If you just read the surface, you’ve still gotten it.” – Sally Thomas
