IEW poetry memorization -- okay for girls?

Recommended Posts

I am considering purchasing this, but I have seen a review or two that mentions that the poems are better suited for boys. I am purchasing this mainly for dd9. Is there enough of a variety that dd will not be fed a steady diet of gore and violence? I don't mind her reading some of that, and of course she'll think it is great fun, but I'd prefer to not have her soaking in such, kwim?


Just wondering about the opinions of those who have this and are familiar with it.


It's in my cart at IEW--just seeking advice before I order.


Thanks so much

My dd 8 is using this and she really loves it. There are plenty of soft, gentle, "girl" poems, but she also enjoys the silly poems. We have only completed level 1, but really, I never felt like these were "boy" poems. If anything, my son is the one who feels a little silly reciting a few.
