Forest Has a Song: Poems  by Amy Ludwig VanDerwater


This was my first “official” poetry for kids book that I read in its entirety and enjoyed the experience (as poetry scares me). If you want an easy and pleasant slide into poetry, try this lovely picture book with themes of spring and nature. It’s perfect for celebrating National Poetry Month with your OMGkids this month!

The rest of the poems rhyme with a quiet resonance much like a pebble dropped into a pond. The poem stays with you long after you read it. You can tell that this book is a labor of love for both author and illustrator.

I think this is a perfect picture book to read in April to celebrate both the coming of spring and National Poetry Month.
