National Poetry Month

Hello Everyone!

April is National Poetry Month  and to celebrate I will share a poem that I have used in bookmarks for the library everytime the seasons change. It is from Seasons by Charlotte Zolotow and Illustrated by Erik Blegvad. Zolotow starts with Winter and ends with Fall. The poems are simple, and poignant. The book of poems are  a great tool to introduce children to the  concept of seasons and poetry. Blegvad’s illustrations brings to life the emotions and thoughts written in each poem. Enjoy!
