Favorite Classic Poetry for Children
There have been many wonderful classic short poems for kids written over the years that I've certainly enjoyed during my childhood - and loved to recite to my own two boys when they were little.
Some favorites we may all remember, such as The Owl and The Pussycat and the bedtime poem: Wynken, Blynken and Nod.
I hope you and your child enjoy this wonderful selection of classic poetry for children which has been added so far, with more to come in the future. I'm sure they'll bring back many memories to parents and grandparents alike. Enjoy!
