Poem Share Best Food Poems

For POEM SHARE, children's poets from across the county present their favorite poems for Poetry Month and beyond. This year, POEM SHARE is back with some greatest hits! Here are some favorite poem videos about food. Yum!  

In this Poem Share, children's author, speaker, publisher, and poetry advocate Janet Wong talks about the joy poems spread, whether they are serious or silly, like her poem "Noodles." 

This Poem Share is sure to make you hungry! JoAnn Early Macken reads her poem "Hamburger," a list poem all about different kinds of hamburgers and hamburger toppings. 

Imagine what would happen if everything you touched or saw turned into a poem?  Poems about toothpaste. The staircase. Even french fries. This is exactly what happens in the book The Poem that Will Not End  by Joan Bransfield Graham.  In this Poem Share,  Joan presents a couplet from the book called "Couplet for French Fries." 

Take a trip to the grocery store with children's poet Linda Dryfhout in this Poem Share. "Unpack" is an ekphrastic poem, or a poem based on a work of art.

  1. My student James in 2nd grade wrote a poem after Janet Wong's Noodle poem which he memorized.

    Tacos I Would Eat

    Tacos to crunch!
    Tacos to munch!
    I can eat a whole bunch.
    I would drink fruit punch.
    Hit that sour cream
    and I will scream.
