Tuesday Teatime

Easy-to-do teatime:

Get a copy of Poetry Speaks to Children.

Pop in the CD.

Open the book to follow along.

Listen to Langston Hughes, Nikki Giovanni, J.R.R. Tolkien, Roald Dahl, Oden Nash, and Robert Frost, among others, read their poetry to you.

It's an amazing experience.

(I've gotta admit, the most memorable moment for me was realizing that Robert Frost read Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening in a totally different way than my mental version of it. On the other hand, Kid1 said Tolkein sounded exactly like what she expected.)

Oh my; we must be on the same wavelength! I just blogged a few minutes ago about reading poetry with my daughter. Thanks for the link - we are definately going to get that CD. Your tea time sounds lovely. I love the hat, too - great color choice.
