It doesn’t matter if it’s 1915 or 2016 kids are fascinated by shadows! Written in 1915 by Robert Louis Stevenson this is a timeless classic!! It is as true today as it was in 1915.
I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me . . .
Not just a pretty poem; but a great learning poem as well. Where does your shadow come from? What causes you to have a shadow? Can you find a shadow outside? What about inside? Does everyone have a shadow? Does your dog? What about the vacuum cleaner?
Y’all know me I love kids books. I love how excited 4-year-old Alice gets over a new book. I love how involved she gets with the story. After we finished reading My Shadow, Alice and I used different light sources to make shadows inside and outside too. We checked to see if everything had a shadow; from flowers to people too. Alice and I even play shadow tag; course it’s not really fair, the NaNa’s shadow is a lot bigger target.
Illustrated by Sara Sanchez this poem really comes to life. I’m certain that Mr. Stevenson would be impressed with the soft and inviting colors in these beautiful illustrations.
