Poem: Stargazing

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.
