Studies have shown that reading poetry to children contributes to their healthful emotional development. Not only that, children who hear poetry from birth become earlier and better readers. Educators, especially reading specialists, and parents repeatedly attest to this fact.

Another great benefit of reading poetry to your child is the bonding such reading creates between parent and child, grandparent and child, teacher and child, or caregiver and child. This bonding will go far to develop confidence and trust and build loving and lasting relationships between the generations. Moreover, the precious memories that result from reading poetry together will linger long throughout life for both reader and child.

Interestingly, many people who write books today-including yours truly-testify to the power of childhood poetry in their lives and the influence it had on their taking up the pen themselves. My own father read poetry to me when I was a child. I still cherish the memories of those treasured times together. I am convinced that my father's reading of poetry to me played a predominant role in my choosing to become a poet and writer myself.

So, if you want to leave a legacy to the precious children in your life, read poetry to them. And especially read POEMS FOR WEE ONES. It will definitely bless your child's soul and warm your child's heart all at the same time.
