As April comes to a close and the warmer weather and summer quickly approach, my kids and I all have marshmallow roasting on the brain. It’s one of my favorite desserts and the kids always have so much fun with the sweet, sticky mess. While we don’t typically do a lot of reading while roasting, there is a picture book with poetry that may be worth exploring that first time we roast marshmallows:  Toasting Marshmallows: Camping Poems.

April is National Poetry month and with that in mind, here are some more  picture book selections which I’ve selected from Susanna Hill’s site and involve poetry. Won Ton: A Cat Tale Told In Hai KuComets, Stars, the Moon and Mars, Butterfly Eyes and Other Secrets of the Meadow, and Scranimals. Additionally there is Emily.  An historical fiction story for children where a young girl meets the reclusive poet, Emily Dickinson when her mother is invited to her house to play the piano.

But, one cannot offer children’s poetry without including Shel Silverstein, whose illustrations and simple rhyming words are a great introduction to poetry for children.
