  1. I feel like I just hit the poetry jackpot, Lizzie. Wow! Thank you!!

    Who knew that poetry would become such a hit with my young boys, ages 4 and nearly 7? They eat it up and can’t seem to get enough. This looks like a list that will keep us going for quite some time.

    Another poet that we have discovered this year is Hilaire Belloc, whom I heard referenced by G K Chesterton in the audiobook of Orthodoxy I was listening to. His Bad Child’s Book of Beasts (http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/27175) and Cautionary Tales for Children (http://www.mainlesson.com/display.php?author=belloc&book=cautionary&story=_contents) are just brilliant.

    • Awesome Lizzie. Now I have two new books to read to the boys. I did not know about his moral alphabet and forgot about the more bad beasts one. Thank YOU!!
