Book excerpt: Perhaps one of the best-known poems to young readers, “Jabberwocky” first appeared in Lewis Carroll’s novel Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There in 1871. Today, it’s a great example for aspiring poets of using imagination and creativity to create a piece of writing. In addition, poems by Rudyard Kipling, William Wordsworth, and Robert Louis Stevenson expose readers to more traditional styles of poetry, as well as the key concepts of structure, rhyme, and rhythm. Fanciful illustrations complement each work.
