The Owl and the Pussycat Printable
The Tyger by William Blake has been one of our favourite poems since childhood. As it was written in 1794 its language is a little difficult for children to understand these days, but it is worth persevering.
This lovely poem is a perfect fit for children. It's simplicity, rhyme scheme and its tie-in with the butterfly life cycle provide plenty to think about.
