I use the Poetry Memorization book without the CDs. I have my son read the new poem aloud several times, we discuss some of the stylistic techniques that stand out to us, and then he works on memorizing a few stanzas. We then go back over the poems he has already memorized. He's far enough along now that he recites every other poem every other day. The methodology behind the program works brilliantly! Plus the selected poems include a great mixture of classically beautiful pieces that I wanted my son to be familiar with, as well as whimsical and entertaining pieces that my son (10yrs) thinks are really funny. -Vicki
