We are excited to share that Poetry Speaks to Children, the book that launched Sourcebooks into children’s book publishing and spent 17 weeks on the New York Times list, was recommended on NPR All Things Considered as the perfect introduction to poetry for kids.
NPR poetry reviewer Tess Taylor said,
“For young and maybe even middle grade kids there's a wonderful collection [edited] by Elise Paschen called Poetry Speaks to Children and it's full of poems that are silly and have wonderful sounds in them. It has even that Shakespeare sonnet: 'Double, double toil and trouble;/ Fire burn and cauldron bubble.' It has a poem about farts in it — always a hit! ... And I think that the poems are so fun that they remind you that poems are just for being in your mouth and helping you have a little bit of joy in language.”
