Finding narrative poetry for the early grades can be hard. Here are some that we have in our library. Notice that most are in the children's section, but some are located in the main stacks because they are also suitable for adults. Look for JUV in the call number for the children's section, or STACKS for the general collection.
When searching in WorldCat Discovery, try keyword searches like: Juvenile AND Narrative Poetry, or Juvenile works and poetry.
Sometimes using two subject searches is best. Be careful with subject searches. They are specific and can really narrow down your choices to zero if you aren't careful. Keywords are great for finding the most. However, look what happens when you combine these subject searches. Some really great books pop up. When searching for these, always use subject searches using the word Juvenile Literature or Juvenile Works or Juvenile Poetry. Combine that with your search using keywords. Here are some examples.
Subject: Juvenile literature and Keyword: lullabies
Subject: Juvenile literature and Keyword: poetry
