    Comments about this product:

    Great teaching voices for children and adults. A reminder that children have the magic and the voice and it needs to be revealed and tapped and held dear.

    Children will be able to tap that creative self if they are helped and allowed a voice, a dong and a dance early on.

    After showing my 3 and 1 year old grandchildren, I'm going to film my granddaughter reciting the 3 poems she created so far.

    She'll learn close-ups, editing, and music accompaniment.A script might be introduced too.

      This is the most charming introduction to poetry for children and adults. The wide variety of poems and readers is entertaining. The definitions of poetry are more insightful than most graduate courses.
