Poetry in Poppins Book Nook

Affiliate links may be included in this post. 

The theme for this month's Poppin's Book Nook is Poetry.  

My mom has read to and taught my kids poetry in years past, but it has been somewhat ignored this school year, so this was a good excuse to add a little rhyming fun to our lessons. 

We have laughed together reading from Shel Silverstein's book Where the Sidewalk Ends and even read a few of the poems out loud to friends. 

Apparently this book was around during my own childhood, but I didn't discover Shel Silverstein until after I was grown.

These poems are silly, sometimes nonsensical, and fun to read. 

The poem with the same name as the book shares of a place that children know... 
Others include silly tales of crocodiles, snowmen, and even rules for marriage (including sewing holey socks.)

This wraps up the 2014-2015 Poppins Book Nook series and our last post with the group. Click here to see other posts shared over the past year.

  1. I never knew about Shel Silverstein until I had my own kids, too! Too funny! The poems really are cute and fun to read aren't they! Reminds me that we need to be studying more poetry in our schooling. - Leah @ ponderingsfrommyheart.com
