Poetry is not my forte but it is something I would love to do and do well with Sir N.  Yesterday we had a home school mother's meeting where we discussed incorporating poetry in our homes.  I was remided of this little treasure I read to my first two 15 years ago when we first started home educating.  Sir N and I recently started reading our way through it.

It's a small book with a few illustrations sprinkled through out.  If you are starting out with poetry with primary aged students I encourage you to start with this one.  The poems are beautiful.  It's not complicated simply read a poem or two a week and enjoy the words together.

 Welcome to Tuesdays Treasures.  I started these posts as a way of sharing great books in honour of my friend in New Zealand who would arrive with the treasures she had unearthed at her weekly trip to the library!

There are so many wonderful books out there hiding on shelves so I invite you to blog about a book on your shelf, one you're reading or one you found at the library. Grab the button for your post and add a link to your post below. I would love to read about your treasures.
