My boys are not as enthusiastic about poetry as I had hoped, but they don't seem to hate it. They aren't even real fans of nursery rhymes. But, they love Dr. Seuss, and A.A. Milne!
Who writes this stuff?
- I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure. I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Side note for Lindsey
I actually have not read anything Shel Silverstein, except for "The Giving Tree". So, I cannot give you any advice on him. I loved "A child's garden of verses" when I was a child, and have read some to my boys. I love the illustrations of Eloise Wilkin, so I read them that "version", as well as anything else of hers that I can get my hands on. If you don't know of her, I highly recommend getting your hands on anything she has drawn. Her pictures of babies and children are my favorites! A lot of her stuff is available in Little Golden Book form.
