Discover the poetry of Carl Sandburg in Poetry for Kids: Carl Sandburg. Carefully chosen for kids, these 35 poems are presented, illustrated, and explained by an expert.

There is no better time to introduce children to poetry and literature than during their formative years. That is why professor and scholar Kate Benzel has used her wealth of experience to carefully curate 35 of Carl Sandburg's luminary poems into one collection that is specially designed for children.

In Poetry for Kids: Carl Sandburg you'll find many classics, some of which you may remember from your childhood, including "Young Bullfrogs," "Shenandoah", "Jazz Fantasia", "Fog", and 31 more of Sandburg's favorite and most accessible works.
