April is National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month.  National Poetry Month was started in 1996 by the Academy of American Poets to celebrate and promote the reading of poetry in all forms.  Poems come in all shapes and sizes.  Poems can be long or short,  happy or sad.  A poem can make you laugh or make you cry, sometimes  both at the same time.  Check out one of these wonderful poetry books and celebrate poetry all month long!
