Spread the love


Poetry brings joy and delight to my whole family.  I love that there is a poem for every situation. We can find a poem to express anguish or joy, silliness or profundity.  We can even find a poem to correlate to any subject we’re studying!

Whether you’re looking for the perfect anthology, wanting to understand poetry’s styles and forms, or hoping to try writing your own poems, this ultimate poetry book list is for you! It includes some of our family’s favorites as well as some new-to-us treasures.  Tots to teens (and their adults) are sure to find a book to enjoy.

Amy Sloan and her husband, John, are second-generation homeschoolers by grace alone to 5 children ages 4, 7, 8, 11, and 13. Their educational philosophy is one of humility and doxology, and follows primarily a classical approach. Amy loves coffee, perseveres through half-marathons and weight-training, and starts getting nervous if the stack of to-be-read library books beside her bed is less than 2 feet tall. Get her started on Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Homer, or Hamilton the Musical and it might be hard to get her to stop. Mostly, though, she gets really excited about the Gospel.
