Polar Poetry

We found two fun books of poetry recently while studying the polar regions: Polar Bear Arctic Hare by Eileen Spinelli and Antarctic Antics: A Book of Penguin Poems by Judy Sierra. The poems are fun to read, nicely illustrated and informative as well. This was one of Miss M's first introductions to poetry, and I was glad to find that she really enjoyed them.

Our family read aloud right now is The Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett. This was a favorite of mine when I was a child and I am glad I can share it with my kids. I think it's a classic for a reason.

You can see other suggestions for books at the What My Child is Reading blog hop over hosted at Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns.


  1. Thanks for joining WMCIR! The poetry books sound awesome - I will be looking for them. I haven't heard of The Little Princess before, but the title itself sounds lovely.

  2. I love the polar bear/arctic theme. Very cute.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate it!
