Ken Nesbitt's Poetry4Kids is home to the works of Ken Nesbitt, Children's Poet Laureate, and
it is a poetry playground. Kids read and rate the poems on this website.
You'll see funny ones, the newest ones and the most popular ones. There
are lessons on writing funny poems, including clerihews and
exaggeration poems. And there's a simple rhyming dictionary. If you register (for free), you can enter poetry contests, participate in a poetry forum, and even keep a poetry journal.
Shel Silverstein's Official Site for Kids
is all about the fun of Shel Silverstein. Every child I know has been
captivated and amused by the off-kilter poetic sense of Silverstein and
his equally oddball illustrations. His website is very much in the same
vein. The audio on the site helps you to fully appreciate and play along
with his poetic hijinks.
