Growth of a Tree, by Meish Goldish

Planting a tree is an unforgettable practical experience for any kids. We keep our children attuned to many little gardening projects we do. Few days ago, when we've packed the outdoor bonsai and the seedlings in insulated packs for outside wintering,  we started to talk again about the changing colors of autumn leaves (one of our preferred themes those days).

Then the discussion did take a new direction: what poems and songs they know about trees.


We had fun reciting or singing together many pieces. This one was our favorite.
I hope you enjoy it, too.

"Growth of a Tree" 
                by Meish Goldish.

I'm a little maple, oh so small,
In years ahead, I'll grow so tall!
With a lot of water, sun, and air,
I will soon be way up there!

Deep inside the soil my roots are found,
Drinking the water underground.
Water from the roots my trunk receives,
Then my trunk starts making leaves.

As I start to climb in altitude,
Leaves on my branches will make food.
Soon my trunk and branches will grow wide,
And I'll grow more bark outside!

I will be a maple very tall,
Losing my leaves when it is fall.
But when it is spring, new leaves will show.
How do trees grow? Now you know!
