Resource: Grandparents.com




Poems to share with children -

While watching TV an interesting ad came on about a site called grandparents.com. I went to take a look and here was this amusing poem and a description about a children's poet laureate. How fun!

Also, thought this might be a good resource for grandparents and parents alike as there are many good activities for all ages. This site really encourages interaction more in depth than the mundane sites that make your eyes glaze over and roll back into your head. Well-written site and easy to navigate - and they had poetry!

Excerpt from A Pizza the Size of the Sun poem:

I'm making a pizza the size of the sun,
a pizza that's sure to weigh more than a ton,
a pizza too massive to pick up and toss,
a pizza resplendent with oceans of sauce.

Jack Prelutsky is widely acknowledged as the poet laureate of the younger generation and very entertaining!
