Uptown Branch Kids Create Poetry

In celebration of National Poetry Month, during April kids at the Uptown Branch have been invited to use the Magnetic Poetry™ kits to create their own free verse.

"Imagine light balloons
pull a strong tree..."

is one of the creations—and what a wonderful image that is!

One of the bulletin boards in the children's room features published poems from more well-known authors in the style of Magnetic Poetry™ as well. The picture here is of "Flood Line" by Constance Levy in the book Splash! And, of course, additional books of poetry for children complete the display.
