Brave Writer mom Amy writes:
Sounds fun, Amy! The Butterfly Jar is a whimsical collection of poems by one of the creators of Sesame Street. Its lighthearted illustrations and poems pair perfectly with Shel Silverstein's hilarious and sweet poetry.
My daughter started her own book of poetry and looks forward to our tea times. Such an amazing way to incorporate poetry in a child's life.
What a great activity! If you need a few poetry ideas to get started on your own book of poetry, check out this list of poetry prompts for kids from Write Shop. Thanks for sharing, Amy!
