Welcome to episode 3!
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!

I love that rain poem! Had to chuckle at the Harry Behn tree poem though as I had *just* finished talking about allelopathic trees with someone.
Renee, I am loving this series. Though I’m familiar with most, I’m finding a few new treasures with each episode. My thanks to both you and Lee for creating this wonderful resource.
These are absolutely lovely! Thank you for this fabulous series!
Another wonderful episode. Thank you so much for the history, the readings and the love of the giants on whose shoulders we stand. I’m trying to pick a mentor for this week. I’m off to find out more about each. I’ll let you know who when I start writing.
Thank you, thank you, Lee and Renee for bringing us these poets! I love Elizabeth Coatsworth!
