Except for books by Caldwell Cook and E. A. G. Lamborn (published between 1912 and 1917), literature recommending poetry writing by school children--pioneered by Marjorie Hourd in 1949--has appeared only within the last 25 years. This literature emphasizes poetry writing as valuable in aiding children to gain both a sense of identity and an apprehension of reality, and in encouraging in children uninhibited verbal expression.
