April is National Poetry Month….and when you say the word “Poetry” to most kids….you probably get the same expression that I gave when I was a kid!

But….I do have a recommendation!  His name was Shel Silverstein! And he honestly is one of the main reasons I started reading books…started writing poetry…and then wanted to become a writer!  You can learn more about him and his legacy at his web-site here:  Shel Silverstein

Here are some examples of some of his poems!! Silly?  Very!  Fun?   Extremely!!!
