A Wilderness of Thought

A Wilderness of Thought – Childhood and the poetic imagination – an Orion article about children and poetry

Idea: We practice reading nightly before bed. The books we read are of the kids choosing. Might we start to allow one text of their choosing and one of ours? Might this be a way to introduce chapter books and poetry with more frequency?
