It’s National Poetry Month — a perfect time to inspire young poets in your family. Where to start? We’ve been re-reading our favorite, Shel Silverstein. Advice from Leo, the 9-year-old-poet: “If you write from your heart, you can do it in a flash.”
And to make it even easier, we’ve adapted poetry prompts from Write On that you can download here for free to get started.

Today our kids are making masks, and they’re coming up with their own play to perform for grandparents on Zoom. If you have a brown paper grocery bag, construction paper, and imaginative kiddos, you’re good to go. Our free downloadable templates are easy to use, or you can make up your own!
Write On: My Story Journal is our own kids’ favorite way to get creative writing practice at home. Full of silly writing prompts (including a game), it’s ideal for ages 7-11.
We re-formatted a few prompts from Write On to make them available as free and easy-to-print downloads. You can buy the full journal here.

We believe every kid should have Bravery — a quarterly magazine that features strong female role models. So we were thrilled to collaborate with the Bravery team on their latest issue about the brave and brilliant Maya Angelou.
Inspired by Maya's love for writing, we created thought-starters for kids to write their autobiographies. Get your issue here.
When one of our kids told us we really needed to celebrate National Popcorn Day, we were inspired to come up creative ways to mark special days throughout the year. The result was Yay! A Celebration Journal — including ideas for crafts, experiments, adventures and get togethers for Morse Code Day, National Bird Day, World Kindness Day, Measure Your Feet Day, and many more.
Also inside is a Yay Days perpetual calendar poster marked with 130 lesser known holidays and stickers to customize your own celebration schedule. It was designed to make memories, share giggles, and discover new family traditions while documenting it all in a journal you’ll look back on for years to come. Yay! makes an especially fun holiday gift to enjoy throughout the new year.
Pick yours up at your favorite local bookseller, Barnes & Noble or Amazon.
