Crocodile Poem

Big Mac wants to see the new Alice in Wonderland movie.  I'm not a big Tim Burton fan, so I'm skeptical, but I made a deal.   If he reads the original book, unabridged, by Lewis Carroll, I'll take him to the new Alice in Wonderland movie.


 


While in Florida, we picked up a paperback copy at this really cool used book shop in Deland.  Big Mac started reading right away and kept reading passages to me.  He said, "This is written really beautifully!"  I really love that even though they don't know it, they are drawn to what Charlotte Mason calls a living book. 


 


One of the passages he read to me was a poem called "How Doth The Little Crocodile."  Today while I was playing around with Graphics Toolbox in order to write next week's review, I made a little display for the poem.  Check it out.  Keep in mind Graphics Toolbox does not do text well.  I should really have this as a word document, but I couldn't figure out how to show you a word document on the blog, so you have to settle for some imperfect text:
