Here’s my favorite poem from the book, which would be great for reading to your children at bedtime
Sleep tightbaby animalsso smallso full of zest.
Burrow in a burrow.Nestle in a nest.Snuggle in a tree trunk.Crawl beneath a stone.Cuddle with a mama.Huddle all alone.Peek out at the sunsetwinking way out west.
You’ll meet the sunwith running fun.It’s night now.Hush now.Rest.
Isn’t that a sweet way to end the day? The poems in Forest Has a Song are all gentle and brief, inviting kids and parents to talk about the sights they might see in a forest and the wonders of our natural world. I hope you’ll pick up a copy of Forest Has a Song to share with your little ones.
