Great Poetry Picture Books

April is Poetry Month. Check out this great selection of children’s picture books.

I am spending most of the day in my classroom getting it ready for after spring break.  As I thought of what picture books to display I immediately knew that I had to celebrate April which is poetry month.  So as I pulled all of our favorite poetry(ish) picture books to put them on display, I thought I should share what my students will hopefully be enticed to read.  Please add your favorites as well.  These are in no particular order.
