National Poetry Month Poetree

April is National Poetry Month.  Our Bookworms and Chapter Chatters book clubs wrote poetry to create a "poetree" this month.

Bookworms read poetry by Jack Prelutsky and shared their favorites during book club.  Did you know most of his poetry can be sung to the tune of "99 Bottles of Pop on the Wall?"  We had fun reading and singing his poetry.

Chapter Chatters read poetry by Shel Silverstein and shared their favorites before writing their own.

Stop in to read a poem or check out a book of poetry. See our catalog here for poetry books in our children's area or browse the nonfiction 811 areas of our library.
