Kids Yoga – Turtle Poetry and Poses
An anonymous poem about turtles, which are abundant here in St. Croix, gets little ones' bodies moving and minds creating........
There was a little turtle; he lived in a box. He swam in a puddle; he climbed on the rocks. He snapped at a mosquito; he snapped at a flew. He snapped at a minnow; he snapped at me. He caught the mosquito; he caught the flea. He caught the minnow; but he didn't catch me!
