Hey, did you know May is National Poetry Month? We say this is the perfect opportunity to revamp your bedtime reading routine. Order the 3 kids poetry books below, then read a few of the kids poems before bed each night this month. Not only will you get a break from the 3 Little Pigs, but you can teach your child about the beauty of the written word in all formats.

For the youngest children, try this collection of kids poems ($15) edited by Jane Yolen. It includes favorites from authors like Margaret Wise Brown, Jack Prelusky, and Nikki Grimes.

In this beautiful pop-up book of poetry ($18), words and paper landscapes share a stage to bring these artful poems alive.

This outstanding collection of poems ($11) written over the span of a hundred years is a great addition to every child’s library.
