Poetry lovers – Make sure to add #ReadAPoemToAChild to your calendar from September 23-28, 2019. “Read A Poem To A Child” is a 100 Thousand Poets for Change literacy initiative introducing children to poetry.

All you have to do to contribute to this initiative is to read poetry to a child during the week of September 23-28. We welcome poetry lovers, teachers, parents, and friends, to help introduce children to the beauty and joy of poetry!
