Poems By Heart from Penguin Classics

Age Level: Ages 8-12, Ages: 12 +
By Developer: Penguin Group USA

This app is not for everyone, but it is for the lovers of poetry and the English teachers out there tearing their hair out trying to teach it to today's youth.

The poetic life is less than a thrill, unsought by lovers of movie reels. Whose life lacks wonder in the art, of rhyme lines with words well parsed. This app provides, amongst all things, a way to enjoy how poetry reads.

This app recites in perfect narration, selected poems from all compilations. From those easy to read, see and hear - to those more difficult, do not fear! An app such as this should cost a grand. It should be there on the phone in everyone's hand. But for you, my dear, two poems are free. Many more available for a small in-app fee. Enjoy the learning and love it brings!

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Contains in-app purchasing.


  • Smoothly animated application
