Young children love poetry. Short, evocative poems assist with awakening imagination, building vocabulary, developing an understanding of rhyme and rhythm, and stimulating children’s interest in reading. These learning ideas were designed to be play-based, hands-on, and open-ended to support the learning needs of children in the 3-5 age-group.
