Where Do the Children Grow

When you see a smiling face
Their happiness all over the place
Singing, laughing, cries of glee,
Come, they say, Play with me!
The slide, the swing, the monkey bars,
Look at them close to see who they are.
Lots of races, Ready, Get Set, Go!
This is how the children grow.

When you watch them everyday
You'll see they learn as they play
They'll do what they see, and say what they hear.
You're their teacher through out the years.
Their ideas and thoughts in their eyes shine.
Imagination is a glimpse of their mind
When you're not looking, don't you know
This is when the children grow.

Watch them when they learn to walk
Listen to them when they learn to talk
Keep them safe, away from harm
Wrap them gently within your arms
Teach them to share and how to take turns.
Set good examples from which they will learn.
At home, at school, wherever they go
This is where the children grow.
