Great for reading to young children, especially when studying Australia.  It is a counting book featuring animals of Australia.  Maybe talk about how the Australian animals differ from locally found animals.  Field trip idea too to see any Australian animals at the local zoo.

It Is Only a Tiny Rosebud

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

It is only a tiny rosebud,
A flower of God’s design;
But I cannot unfold the petals
With these clumsy hands of mine.

The secret of unfolding flowers
Is not known to such as
I.
GOD opens this flower so sweetly,
When in my hands they fade and die.

If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
This flower of God’s design,
Then how can I think I have wisdom
To unfold this life of mine?

So I’ll trust in Him for His leading
Each moment of every day.
I will look to him for His guidance
Each step of the pilgrim way.

The pathway that lies before me,
Only my Heavenly Father knows.

I’ll trust Him to unfold the moments,
Just as He unfolds the rose.

-Bryan T. Burgess
