Did you know that April is National Poetry Month? Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month is the largest literary celebration in the world. The Aldine Library will be celebrating poetry’s vital place in our culture throughout the month. We will be reading poems over the library loud speaker to expose everyone in the library to our collection. Get ready to hear some good poetry!
A lot of kids don't think they like poetry that is until, they listen to someone read a book that is funny. So, in honor of National Poetry Month, I would like to highlight two books that will tickle your funny bone.
