to Tell the Birds from the Flowers
This verse by Robert Williams
Wood was first published in 1907 by Paul Elder and Company. Having
noticed that the copyright had expired on the volume that belonged
to his great-grandmother, David Newman scanned it onto his Web site
in its entirety. Kids and adults will enjoy the verses and the
illustrations that teach us "How to Tell the Birds from the
Flowers". "Some are unable, as you know, to tell the
Crocus from the Crow. The reason why is just because, they are not
well versed in Nature's laws."
The KidzPage is a delightful
collection of poetry that shouldn't be missed. Start with Emmi
Tarr's Critter ABCs. "A is for Antelope graceful in flight. B
is for Butterfly, glittering bright." Then move on to Ogden
Nash for more animal fun. "God in his wisdom made the fly. And
then forgot to tell us why." Near the bottom of the page,
you'll find poetry submitted by kids and teens. For more places to
send your kids' poems, come back next week for my column on

Mother Goose and other
nursery rhymes are an important introduction to literature, and the
basis for developing a love for words. All the experts agree: read
rhymes to your kids. Zelo's alphabetic list of nursery rhymes looks
a little unfinished, but it's the best collection of nursery rhymes
I could find on the Web. For more ideas on using nursery rhymes as
an educational tool, read Pat Anderson's On
Reading Nursery Rhymes With Children of Varying Ages.
