About the films

Preschool Poets is a series of eight short animated films based on poems composed by four and five year olds. The films are fueled by the children’s untethered imaginations, opening a portal to the real world of growing up in the inner city. After experiencing the Poems, dive deeper and learn about how these poems were created with the documentary.
