Poetry
Rhyming, rhythm, and meter make poetry fun for every reader.

By Jamie McElroy
Poetry doesn’t have to be difficult to understand. In fact, the immense variation of poetic styles allows for just about anything to be considered a poem. Rita Dove once said, "Poetry is language at its most distilled and most powerful." Reading poetry leads to as much understanding of language as composing a poem does. Share the love of language with these whimsical anthologies and rhyming books.
