The Poetry Friday Anthology - Nice collection of short poems to use all year round. One poem per grade level (K-5) for each week of the year. $ You can find a link to this book and other poetry resources on Laura Candler's poetry page.
Toasting Marshmallows: Camping Poems by Kristine O'Connell George - This is one of my favorite poetry books for kids. The poems are about simple experiences and any child who has ever been camping can relate to these poems. Brought back memories of my own family camping days!

Good explanation of Haikus for my older kids. In April, the whole front of my circulation desk becomes a poetry wall. I buy cheap decorative post-its from target and the kids are allowed to write a poem on them and stick it to the wall. At the end of the month we host a poetry night and students can read one of those poems!
April is National Poetry month. Come check out the poetry display in the Library Lobby done by Librarian, Judith Alsdorf, featuring Lynn’s own poet, Yanatha Desouvre.
