Kids Wings Favorite 4 Poetry Picture Books!

A Lucky Thing, Mirror Mirror, My Dog Is as Smelly as Dirty Socks, and Dirty Laundry Pile

Poetry makes the ordinary extraordinary.  It helps us look at things with different eyes and often helps us think “out-of-the-box.”  It reveals “secrets.”  It uses some of the most interesting pieces of our language including figurative language.  Figurative language includes similes and metaphors to compare two very different things and personification to bring objects and animals to life
