Culled from the rich history of English poetry, Poems Every Child Should Know is meant to enrich our children’s cultural treasure chest. Verse, like virtue, is often most beautiful when it is most simple. A good beginning makes a good end all the more likely. So, immersing children in beautiful words and teaching them to observe a beautiful sentence is of the utmost importance. Words are powerful and continually shape our world, our thoughts, and our prayers. Appreciating beauty in life is a lesson that will prepare their minds to receive Truth, Beauty, and Goodness Himself.
Throughout Poems Every Child Should Know, readers will find “things to think about,” inviting them to engage with individual poems. These are invitations to adventure into unknown territory, an opportunity further up and further in. Be fearless, be adventurous, and enjoy this journey into the realm of the good, the true, and the beautiful of our English language.
