Poetry Friday




Poetry Friday is hosted today by Jama'sAlphabet Soup.

For Poetry Friday: "Lazy Days Of Summer" by Judy Young and illustrated by Kathy O'Malley.
 

Just for fun, here is a collection of simple rhymes highlighting a variety of summer activities. Kick-the-can, hopscotch, marbles, and relay races are just a few of the playtime options. Following each rhyme, a "Do You Know" section offers some background and/or history. Did you know that Roman soldiers played their own version of hopscotch?

With the school year coming to an end, this book might be just the ticket for those sunny summer days.
