We found a great interview by Jane Henderson – jhenderson@post-dispatch.com and we like to share some phrases which the author expresses her feelings about the poems:

“More and more kids are memorizing poems together or participating in poetry slam teams,”

“For kids, if you do something with your friends, it makes it a lot more fun.”

“These old poems really condense some very fundamental lessons, values and emotions. I think they are really valuable. They encourage the imagination — they are so visual.”

“The poems are short, intense, meant to be read aloud, performed”
