History of American Children’s Poets – Episode 2: The 1930s

Welcome to episode 2!

In this series, Lee Bennett Hopkins takes us through a chronology of American poets for children from 1920 to 1999. Each episode focuses on the poets of a single decade, and the posts include a few sample poems, photos, and a growing timeline of poets.

We hope you’ll enjoy this journey through time with us!
