Klock, Geoff Raising Kids Who Give a Damn about Poetry Life Skills- Parenting,
Literature- Poetry,
Literature- Authors
I am the author of How to Read Superhero Comics and Why and I have a doctorate in nineteenth and twentieth century poetry from Oxford University. I am an energetic and engaging public speaker, and I specialize in bringing the richest view of literature to a general audience without needless academic jargon. Baby Mozart aims to make kids smarter by stimulating them through music. This talk is aimed at parents who want to raise their kids with an appreciation of poetry. High culture and low tech, poetry reinforces the memory through rhythm and rhyme and puts into place advanced language skills and vocabulary. Reading poetry to very young children gives them what the books say they need: the sound of the human voice. I take parents through a number of poems appropriate for children explaining how best to read poetry aloud, why each is important, and provide a list of where they can go next: a single book of poetry will last the rest of their lives. This is a one hour talk, and could be a series of talks if so desired.
