Happy National Poetry Month!
It's never too early introduce your littles to poetry, and I've compiled a list of picture books that can help you do just that.
Below I've included books that feature poetry as well as books that share the biographies of great poets.
The starred (*) titles are books I own or have borrowed from the library, and the rest are titles I hope to check out soon.
I've also included a link to my poetry collection Words or Water, but that one is just for the adults ;)
What picture books featuring poetry do you and your family love?
