The Teapot Dragon

December 4, 2008 -- From Evelyn, a teacher, from Florida, USA, who is affiliated with the site.

Come read the poem of the Teapot Dragon with it’s crinkly tail and pincer claws. It sticks out it’s tongue and keeps the tea piping hot.

The Teapot Dragon is a poem that takes a child from reality to imagination. Start with The Teapot Dragon poem and explore imagery through words. Pour the tea into the Dragon’s Teapot and write some dragon poetry.

Daily Poems

June 26, 2006 -- From Blair, a parent, from Scotland, who is not affiliated with the site.

A nice site which has the usual collection of the “classic poets”. However, this page also contains poetry for children or by young authors from many poets I hadn’t heard of. Some real funny classics – “when daddy fell into the pond” and “The ant exporer”.

Outside the Lines: Poetry At Play

May 5, 2006 -- From Brad Burg, a reader from Morristown, NJ, who is affiliated with the site

Hi! I built this site around my book of graphic poetry for children, ‘Outside the Lines: Poetry At Play’ (Penguin). The site explains to kids a bit about what graphic poetry is – and why that may be a better name than concrete poetry. It also has motion poems (a step beyond graphic), puzzle poems, and some songs.
