Poetry – Bed in Summer

Our new poem is Bed in Summer by Robert Louis Stevenson. My mother-in-law used to read the book “A Child’s Garden of Verses” to my husband and his sister when they were little.  She had given us a copy of this book a while ago, but after moving I had forgotten about it.  Recently, my son was reading books in his room and he came running so excited with the book in his hand. He had opened it and had recognized the poems we have been learning.  I think the pictures in the book are so beautiful.  Here’s the one for Bed in Summer…

Coloring sheets are also included in the file.

I am loving the poems my kids are learning and to listen to their little voices reciting them, just brings a smile to my face.  I hope you guys can use this too!  🙂
