The detachable pages in Poem in Your Pocket for Young Poets enable readers to select a poem they love, tear it out neatly from the book, and carry it with them all day to read, be inspired by, and share with family and friends.


Published by Amulet Books in association with the Academy of American Poets, this book is presented in an innovative format and includes one hundred poems organized by theme (food, feelings, play, animals, and more). The collection contains classic children's poems by Walt Whitman, E. E. Cummings, and Elizabeth Bishop, as well as poems by today's most popular poets, from Fanny Howe to Naomi Shihab Nye. Foster the love of poetry during National Poetry Month, on Poem in Your Pocket Day, or in the classroom any day of the school year.
