The use of personification in poetry or literature is common. Personification is the attributing of human characteristics, thoughts or emotions to something that is non-human.

Personification may also be used briefly in a sentence or phrase, such as “the sun shone happily after the rain.” These personification practice worksheets are free for you to print and use in your classroom or at home.
