“You can eat them. You can plant them. You put them in the dirt snow and they turn into seeds. They grow into a chocolate chip tree. The tree is blue and the chocolate chips are black!”
I found the following poem while looking for new ones for the kids to memorize. I thought it fit very well!
Little Brother’s Secret
By Alfred A. Knopf (1924)
When my birthday was coming
Little Brother had a secret:
He kept it for days and days
And just hummed a little tune when I asked him.
But one night it rained
And I woke up and heard him crying:
Then he told me.
“I planted two lumps of sugar in your garden
Because you love it so frightfully.
I thought there would be a whole sugar tree for
And now it will all be melted
O the darling!
