Before the Story
The title of the story is Daniel Finds a Poem.  The author and illustrator is Micha Archer. That means she wrote the story and drew all the pictures.  In this story, Daniel tries to find a poem. He asks lots of animals to help him. Do you think you can help him too?

During the Story
Ask children to listen carefully so they can repeat the words that each animal and insect use to explain poetry. For example, after spider says, “Poetry is when morning dew glistens,” say to the children “What is poetry?” and lead them in repeating “Poetry is when morning dew glistens.”

After the Story
Take a walk back through the book and ask children to look at the pictures and tell you what happened on each day. Let’s look back at the pictures and see what we remember. What did Daniel see on Monday? What did he do on Tuesday?
