Seven silent bears creep stealthily from their bed
They should have been sleeping, but are sneaking instead
Out of their room and into the night
Seven silent bears from their treehouse alight
Bathed in the moonlight the bears make their way
Over under around and through but not a word they say
In search of “whooo” away flies their doubt, for
Bathed in the moonlight – well, read it to find out
Note: Just in time for Halloween, a spooky book about…prepositions!
All of your favorites are here: in, out, down, around, over, under, with special appearances by between and through!
