INFOGRAPHIC: 9 benefits of reading poetry

As opposed to the most popular post on this blog ‘Why people don’t like poetry’, I have compiled according to my so far done research a little, simple (yet cute, you have to admit 🙂 ) infographic about beneficial aspects of reading poetry.  Many of us do like reading/writing poetry and we all know that it goes beyond pure use of certain words and language functions.

  1. I used family poetry reading to generalise one of my autistic daughter’s speech therapy. I made compilations that encompassed a range of complexities so everyone could read something and aspire to read more.
