Dear Poets Participating in Read A Poem to A Child,
 
Below is a beautiful downloadable selection of poems for children compiled by Rachel Duke, Rare Books Librarian, Special Collections & Archives, FSU Libraries, for the 100 Thousand Poets for Change “Read A Poem To A Child” initiative.
 
Feel free to read these poems to a child if you like. Ultimately, the choice of reading materials you select is up to you. We thought this might be a helpful reading resource.
 
Thank you again for participating in this initiative! It’s looking great with nearly 2000 groups and individuals participating worldwide!
 
If you can take pictures or make recordings we would love you to share them with us!
 
Love and Peace,
Michael and Terri
