Poem: Summer Stargazing

[Verbal Communications]
Author:  Marilyn Singer
Illustrator:  LeUyen Phan

Read poems to your children...often.   Better yet, memorize simple poems together.   Memorize this poem so that you are prepared to recite it the next time you look up and see the heavens lit up with stars.   Recite Stargazing by Marilyn Singer and then begin giving each star its own name...


Looking at the summer stars
is our latest game.
I like to count them one by one
while Dad gives each a name.

He says it's so much better
than trying to count sheep.
We make the stars our very own
before we fall asleep.

This poem comes from Singer's book, 

A Stick is an Excellent Thing.
Poems Celebrating Outdoor Play
