It looks like rainy weather is here to stay for a few days. Good weather for ducks and some duck poetry. Additionally, my daughter's preschool teacher brought some duck eggs to school, and my daughter is excitedly waiting for the eggs to hatch.
Here's our latest poetry choice. We found this wonderful poem about ducks in The Llama Who Had No Pajama: 100 Favorite Poems by Mary Ann Hoberman, illustrated by Betty Fraser. The poems in the book are perfect for younger readers. The selections feature different animals and other topics of interest to children.
"Ducks are lucky,
don't you think.
When they want to
Take a drink,
All they do is
Duck their bill.
If they spill.)"
My daughter drew a lovely watercolor pencil illustration for her "My Poetry Book" to accompany today's poem.
