Join hundreds of teachers and students as we we share stories each day in March!

Join the Poetry Friday Round up at Rogue Anthropologist
It's also Poetry Friday! Join us!

Once again, Little L. knows that Mommy cannot resist allowing her to stay up a little bit past bedtime to tell stories, or in this case a poem.

What Is It

What is a bag? 
A bag is something you carry something in.

What is a person?
I am a person.

What is an eyeball?
It is on you.

What is a baby?
It is a kid when it is not grown up yet.

What is hair?
It is on your head is this.

What is a nose?
The nose is what you smell with.


UPDATE: Wow, so I later realized that it is actually only Thursday, so Little L and I are a little early for Poetry Friday. But doesn't it feel like Friday?


  1. Precious!

    She can't grow up to be a poet.
    she is a poet already.

    happy weekend to you both.

    1. Thanks Jan! This kid loves a good pattern, and the sound of repetition, let me tell you!

  2. Little L. is brilliant! I love the line:
    "What is a baby?
    It is a kid when it is not grown up yet." = )

    1. Totally! She's thinking about her baby brother in that line, for sure.

  3. Very simple yet filled with so much wonder. Love it! :)
