Ann Taylor

Ann Taylor was born in England. She is best known for her work on children’s poems and stories with her sister, Jane, author of such well known poems as “The Star” (more easily recognized as lyrics for the nursery rhyme, “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”). After several joint volumes, Taylor married and ceased publishing poetry for some time. Only in the late 1820’s did Taylor begin to publish her poetry again.

What People are Saying

"Poetry Out Loud helped me gain confidence in myself. I'm usually quite shy, but memorizing and performing poems and meeting new people along the way has given me confidence that I will always carry with me."
