Poem: A River & A Raft

I encourage you to not only share poems with your children, but to create poems together.  I sat down with a young child recently after sharing the book, The Raft, and (along with a rhyming dictionary and a thesaurus), we came up with this  poetic creation…

A River & A Raft

The river meanders to and fro…
where it goes, we do not know.

On our raft, we sit and listen…
with this day, we are so smitten.

Into the raft’s wood, we leave our mark…
me and my best friend, Clark!

 

All you need is some inspiration from a good book like
The Raft, and some rhyming words….

Why not create your own family raft poem today?
