A Poetry Collection
by Dionna Sanchez
Emphasis On Moms
I am kind of a journal addict. I love to keep all kinds of journals -travel journals, journals to my children, homemaking journals and more. I also really love reading and writing and encouraging these skills in my children. When I saw this idea for a poetry collection, I really liked it because it incorporates all of these things together into one book.
Jacquelline Kennedy Onassis loved poetry. She wanted to pass her love for poems onto her children so she started a poetry collection. She would have John and Caroline each write their own poem or choose one that they related to, valued or spoke to them in some way; and they would compile them into a poetry book.
Imagine how precious that book is to Caroline today!
You can also start a poetry collection. If you homeschool, this would be a fantastic project. But even if you just like to journal or love poems and want to use this idea to make poetry real to your children and spark an interest in them for the love of words.. this would be a fabulous tradition to start. You can haphazardly put poems into the album when you find the time or assign special days or holidays as deadlines for finding a poem and inserting it into
Whichever way you decide to go about it - I know this will be a fun and growing project for you and your children. I think it will prove to be truly treasured as time goes on.
