I know we have a lot of teachers, librarians and parents on the board, so I thought I would give you guys a shot. Does anyone have any recommendations for a poem about springtime for children? I am looking for something fairly simple for my niece - a few lines, simple words, about a 1st grade level, to read on her own.
Suggestions on what to google would be appreciated too. I have tried various combinations of spring, season, children's, kids, poems, poetry, etc. and the results are not what I am looking for (i.e. they are several stanzas, or use old english or discuss things in difficult 'poetic grammar' - I just want something to send along with a spring time gift for my niece.
As an aside, I will be purchasing a copy of Shel Silversteins "Where the sidewalk ends" but wont be able to get to it before I send this gift...
Thanks in advance!
