Poet Naomi Shihab Nye has a wide crossover appeal between young and old. In this talk given at the 2006 DNA Children's Literature Festival in Kansas City, Nye discusses how adults can prevent kids' natural interest in poetry from slipping away. She reads some poems for children that encourage imagination from her books A Maze Me: Poems for Girls; You and Yours; and 19 Varieties of Gazelle: Poems of the Middle East. A 2003 program along with parts one and two of a 2018 interview with Naomi Shihab Nye are also available in our audio archives.
