Poems for
Younger Children

Happy Girl


By Josie Whitehead

Growing Up

I’m little but I’m growing up

    A little more each day -

And what helps me to grow up big?

      It’s all the games I play.


It's all the good things which I eat;

     It's sleeping well at night

And you might think I've far to go

     But growing up's all right.


I'm observing all the things you do

    And hearing what you say.

Yes, I'm little but I'm growing up

     A little more each day.


I've lots of growing up to do

    But that's all right with me

For I'm achieving such a lot

    As you can surely see.


I'm making lots of little friends

     At play-school every day

And once the toys come on the scene

      We're busy at our play.


My friends are growing up as well

     And when all's said and done:

Growing up, at my young age,

     Is lots and lots of fun.
