Special Spooky Poem of the Day

So, the poetry readings are back on at our house! Hooray!!! I won't say the girls woke up begging for a poem, but when I suggested I had a very good and very spooky poem to share with this morning, they were excited to hear it.

Here is Lewis Caroll's wonderful poem:

Twinkle, twinkle, little bat!
How I wonder what you’re at!
Up above the world you fly,
Like a teatray in the sky.

As you can imagine, this cracked-up my 2- and 4-year-olds to no end. They both love Alice in Wonderland too, so I may let them in on the origins of this poem and read an excerpt from Alice tonight for their bedtime book.
