Read the poems last nightSeptember 21, 2007
The 7yr old has to read 15min a night for school, so I pulled the unfinished poem book up on the computer screen for her to read. She read “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” for me – and did a great job. When she got to the end and recognized the last paragraph she had a huge smile and gave me a great look. It gave me a good feel for what poems should be in the book. Going to remove some of the longer ones, or move them to the back, in favor of shorter ones that she can understand and read.
