What could you learn from a kangaroo?
Maybe how to hop and box, play pocket peek-a-boo?
Or could a monkey teach you how to swing and climb and jump?
How ‘bout a rabbit and her babies, would you learn to thump, thump, thump?
Could you learn a thing or two from others along the way;
Or does learning only happen in the classroom today?
Is it possible that anyone can teach you their different styles?
Or perhaps you learn mathematics by walking grocery aisles?
What if it were possible to learn science at a pond
Studying fish and snakes and tadpoles and frilly fern fronds?
Could reading bring adventure, and art mean painting a barn?
What about gymnastics, hide and seek, and telling a big fat yarn?
There’s more than just one way to learn,
And many teachers too,
Moms and Dads, teachers, friends, nature, and pets all do.
What if it is possible to learn from A to Z
The way things work, and who I am, from everything I see?
That all we need to do
Is talk and walk and play and work
And learn from night to noon.
What are some non-conventional ways you and your littles integrate learning and talking about God in your daily lives?
