Photo Hunt ~ Weekly Theme: Book(s)


Weekly Theme: BOOK(S)

When I was young, I heard poetry read by my maternal grandfather in
his Scottish broque accent. I also heard poetry read by my father with
his rich, expressive voice. This is when I learned to love poetry.
(Their voices still resonate in my mind today.) As an elementary
teacher and a parent I truly enjoyed sharing poetry for children
with my classes and my own children. Actually, I still love it to this day.
The above is one of my all time favorite children's poetry book.
