Children's Literature: Poetry


Poetry  can be an expression of ideas, feeling, and emotions.  Often it has a musical quality, can increase enjoyment, develop an appreciation for language, and gain insight into our feelings.  

Different forms of poetry are: lyric, narrative, ballad, limerick, concrete, and Haiku.
