Get Ready for Young People’s Poetry Week, April 10–16
— reported by the School Library Journal
Librarians get ready—April 10–16 is Young People’s Poetry Week, and those who work with children and young adults are urged to celebrate this official part of National Poetry Month.
Young People’s Poetry Week will offer kids a chance to share the reading, writing, and poetry that they’ve experienced year-round. And librarians are expected to host poetry readings, poetry contests, and other high-energy activities that will help kids feel more confident in themselves as readers and writers.
Sponsored by the Children’s Book Council, librarians are encouraged to visit www.cbcbooks.org to find an extensive list of online resources and ideas, such as crossword puzzles, lists of poetry books for kids, and printable interviews with well-known children’s book poets.
