Simple Poetry for Kids
Action Poems

Simple Poetry for Kids has easy kids' poems for preschoolers that are fun and funny. Have a great time with these action poems!

I have provided some funny poems for kids, followed by book recommendations for these poets and writers. Give your child a sampling of the the wide variety of poems out there. Is he a Roald Dahl kinda man or a Tony Mitton girl?

Please watch this Ted.com video by Stephen Burt: Why people need poetry. "We're all going to die — and poems can help us live with that." In a charming and funny talk, literary critic Stephen Burt takes us on a lyrical journey with some of his favorite poets, all the way down to a line break and back up to the human urge to imagine.

Rocket by Tony Mitton

I am a rocket

crouched on the ground,

waiting quietly

without a sound.

Light this fuse

on my little toe...

Ready for take-off?

Here I go :

WOOOOOOOOOOSH!

You can get your child to do the actions for this poem and pretend to be a rocket. Books by Tony Mitton include Roaring Rockets (Amazing Machines), Dinosaurumpus! and I Want to Shout and Stamp About: Poems About Being Angry (Poemotions). He did a series of books on various kinds of vehicles and transportation : Airplanes, Trains, Trucks, Diggers, Fire Engines, Boats, Tractors, Cars and Submarines. So if you have a kid mad about different vehicles...


Exercises by Linda Hammond

Bend your body,

touch your toes.

Straighten up,

and touch your nose.

Wave your arms,

now touch each knee.

Stamp your feet,

and count to three.

One, two, three!

After a Bath by Aileen Fisher

After my bath

I try, try, try

to wipe myself

till I'm dry, dry, dry.

Hands to wipe

and fingers and toes

and two wet legs

and a shiny nose.

Just think how much

less time I'd take

if I were a dog

and could shake, shake, shake.

Books by Aileen Fisher include 'The Story Goes On'.


Yellow by David McCord

Green is go,

And red is stop,

And yellow is peaches

With cream on top.

Earth is brown,

And blue is sky;

Yellow looks well

On a Butterfly.

Clouds are white,

Black, pink and mocha;

Yellow's a dish

of Tapioca.

Books by David McCord include 'Every Time I Climb a Tree'.
