Ever felt a disconnect when writing poetry? Children's literacy expert, Rachael Walker details her struggles and how she overcame them in "The P Word." #NationalPoetryMonth

Poetry has never been my favorite. It was something archaic you had to read at school. If it was presented as “Poetry,” I never particularly enjoyed it. I’ve always tried to read more poetry, but it was an effort. Though I love stories, I somehow couldn’t connect to the story in the poems I ...

From now until the May 12, Everybody Wins DC will recap all of the special moments in our 27-year history.

At the 20th Annual Everybody Wins DC Gala, NBPA Executive Director Michele Roberts served as the night's keynote speaker.

In Michele's speech, she discussed the impact shared reading had on her: "My earliest memory was of my mother reading to me...we didn't have a car, and had no money to travel, but reading introduced me to all kinds of people and places...I read and I read and I read..."

On this day in 1869, the Franklin School held a dedication ceremony in the new flagship public school’s Great Hall. Now, 152 years later, visitors to Planet Word can stand in that same Great Hall, with replica frescoes from that era, but instead of hearing the voices of school children, visitors are now enveloped by the voices of language ambassadors from around the world, sharing their insights with us all.
