A Poem for Every Night of the Year

Erika bought this for us for Christmas 2017, and we've been reading through it as prescribed - we start each bedtime with that night's poem. It's really great! There are a lot of poems we didn't enjoy, but a TON of great ones. Lots that I knew before and delighted to have a reason to read out loud with the kids, and lots of new ones that we discovered.

Several turned into real games with the kids: we wrote our own versions, we practiced memorizing them. I'm really both surprised that we managed to stick with the pattern, and I'm excited to re-read the poems in 2019.
