Poetry Month Has Begun!

Happy April, everyone! We love this month here at Little Shop because it's National Poetry Month! Every day for the next month we'll put a poem up on our blog. We also have Poems For Your Pocket that you can pick up at the register at the shop, and at the end of the month we'll have our annual Poetry Jam where kids are invited to read some of their favorite poems out loud. What a wonderful time of year!


April Poem


The morning moon is round and gold
Up in the misty milk-blue sky;
The towering poplar sways alone;
The birds are shouting one by one,
It's first of April, everyone!
In April foolery, that moon
Shines like a small and gentle sun.
