HBO Presents: The Poetry Show

The Poetry ShowA review by Elizabeth Falcón

Elizabeth is the Poetry Center's Education Intern.  She is also a poet, MFA student, teaching artist, and a mother of two.

I recently sat down with my kids (ages 2 and 4) to watch the HBO Classical Baby's The Poetry Show, not really knowing what to expect.  What we found was a half-hour introduction to the essence of poetry, hosted by young children, who, in addition to introducing poems from William Shakespeare to Robert Frost, also explicate the poems with accessible, insightful observations.
