The website was born one year ago. With 14,500 visitors and growing from 50 to more than 200 new rhyming poems, with voice recordings and illustrations, it is popular with teachers, parents and children across the world. It is a developing website with all original poems, the work of Yorkshire writer, Josie Whitehead and freely available. Lots of fun story poems and all written with perfect rhyme and rhythm, which children love.

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”.

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.

This site has a bunch of poetry that anyone of any age can read and enjoy. The poems featured on this site were all created by me, a fourteen- year old kid who loves poetry.
