National Poetry Month! …Even For Boys:)

Wahoo!  April is National Poetry Month!  Who doesn’t love a good poem?  I have a confession…I didn’t really like poetry much, not too long ago.  Well, I like it now and that’s all that matters:)  Anyway, finding poetry is not normally a problem.  Finding poetry that boys will read, sometimes proves to be difficult.  I’ve listed 10 poetry books for boys.  Are they the only ones out there?  NO WAY!  This is just a short list for your reluctant poetry reader.  Here they are in no particular order.  P.S. Girls will also enjoy these:)

Enjoy!

  1. For those thinking poetry is for sissies, Robert Service has the machismo of Jack London. And he rhymes.

    If you don’t mind terribly, I think I’ll stick to this, Trin. The minuses of Facebook seem to far outweigh the pluses 🙂
