    Valentine’s Day Card

    10/02/2020 Duração: 02min

    When I was in elementary school, everyone would give Valentine’s Day cards to everyone else in the class. In second grade, there was a girl in my class that I really liked, and my father convinced me that I should give her an extra special card. The card was big. It was pink and purple,...

  • Lunchbox Love Note

    Lunchbox Love Note

    03/02/2020 Duração: 01min

    When my kids were in school, my wife and I packed them each a lunch every day. My wife would sometimes put notes in their lunchboxes, often saying, “I love you.” I always wondered whether they found it embarrassing to have love notes from their mother in their lunches. I never did find out. Instead,... Read more » The post Lunchbox Love Note appeared first on Kenn Nesbitt's Poetry4kids.com.

  • Our Dog’s Name is Roomba

    Our Dog’s Name is Roomba

    27/01/2020 Duração: 01min

    I have a dog; a little black pug named Jesse. But I often joke that his name should be Hoover, because he’s so great at cleaning up dropped food that it’s like having a little vacuum cleaner. When people ask about him, I tell them he is a “purebred chow-hound” because he seems to always... Read more » The post Our Dog’s Name is Roomba appeared first on Kenn Nesbitt's Poetry4kids.com.

    I have a couple of cats, and they both love to sit on my lap. Whenever I’m watching TV or playing a video game, one of my cats will jump up on my lap and go to sleep. Sometimes, they both sit on my lap at the same time! Over the past few months, I...

  • Sleeping Santa – Podcast Episode

    Sleeping Santa – Podcast Episode

    09/12/2019 Duração: 02min

    This Christmas poem is all about an “idiom.” In case you don’t know, an idiom is an expression whose meaning is not predictable from the words used. For example, to “kick the bucket” means to die, and to “let the cat out of the bag” means to reveal a secret. If you were just learning...

    If you’ve ever talked to an assistant on a mobile device, like Siri, Alexa, or Google Assistant, you probably know that it doesn’t always understand what you are saying as well as you would like. And, often, when you type on a phone or tablet, the autocorrect feature can make some pretty bizarre mistakes. I...

    My Flat Cat – Podcast Episode

    18/11/2019 Duração: 01min

    When I talk to kids, one question they often ask me is if any of my poems are true? That is, they want to know if any of the things I write about actually happened. Of course, I tell them, “No.” My poems are all fiction, meaning I just made them up. However, many of...

    Do you walk to school? Ride your bike? Take the bus? Or does your mom drive you to school? Where else does she drive you? Do you play a sport or take lessons after school? If you want to go to the store to buy something, does she drive you there? When I was a...

    Chocolate for Breakfast – Podcast Episode

    28/10/2019 Duração: 01min

    I love chocolate. Don’t you? I mean, doesn’t everybody? When I was a kid, my favorite Halloween treats were always chocolate candy bars like Hershey’s, Snickers, and Three Musketeers. After Halloween night, I always ate those ones first. After a few days, all that was left were the candies I didn’t like. I’ve heard that...
