Top 5 Poems to Read to Kids

I’m Late for School

By: Gareth Lancaster

                I chose this poem because this poem reminds me of me. One day when I was in 3rd grade, I was so rush to get out of the house as fast as I could only to realize that I forgot my pants when I stepped into the bus. The bus driver wasn’t looking so he pulled off and went straight to school. Luckily I wasn’t the last one who got into the bus, so I asked my friend to go back and grabbed his pants. It was the most embarrassing thing in 3rd grade because everyone was talking about me that whole month. Oh how I love those sweet memories.

The Little Blue Choo-Choo

By: Lorace

                I think this poem is good for kids because kids love Thomas the Tank Engine, I do too. When I saw the title, “The Little Blue Choo-Choo” First thing that popped up in my head was Thomas. When I further read the poem, I find it intriguing how the story is being told and the simplicity of the words. It also taught me a lesson to put other people first and care more about their feelings. It just a great poem and I like it.

Teddy Bear

By: Alan Alexander Milne

                I chose this poem because it taught me a good lesson that nobody is perfect and also that you are not alone in this world. This poem might sounds confusing in some part to be read to kids. Once in every kid’s childhood own a bear, even if it’s the one from their evil aunts. Also kids these days know things too early, and they started to feel insecure about themselves due to the media’s view of perfection. This poem is really good in teaching the kids to love who they are and no matter what they’re not alone.

It’s Boring Being a Monster

By: Richard MacWilliam

                I chose this poem because it shows the perspective of the monsters, who every kids scare off. It opens my eyes to what the monster feels and not just me being scare of it. It taught me to step into other people shoes and see things from their perspective. It makes me think of the bullies at school, and how they feel about why they bully and such. Even though I’m more of a bully myself, it’s nice to see other’s perspective once in a while.

Little Boy Blue

By: Eugene Field

                This poem makes me sad. It reminds me of Toy Story 3 when we grew up and we just threw all of our toys away. It seems like a good idea since now that we are old, toys are waste of space. But looking back at the poem, it reminded of the time when I threw all my toys away. Only to wish I can get them back now, somehow.
