Why I love having a large home library

Why I love having a large home library: At 830 on a Saturday night, when kiddo looks up at the stars and wants to know about that killer in the sky, we can pull a variety of works from our shelves and do a mini-unit study on the constellation Orion. 

"The Hunter"

A night long
Across the sky
Orion the hunter
Goes striding by

What is the quarry
He pursues
Through stars as bright
And thick as dews

And who has heard
His great dog bark
Sirius baying
Through the dark?
