A song with actions to teach your child about how a plant grows.
In my little garden bed,
Raked so nicely over,
First I plant the little seeds,
Then with dirt I cover.
Shining down the great, bright sun,
Smiles upon it often.
Little raindrops pattering down,
Help the seeds to soften.
Now my little plant awakes,
Down the roots go creeping.
Up it pops its little head,
through the brown dirt peeping.
High and higher still it goes,
Through the summer hours,
Till some happy day the buds,
Open into flowers.
