Smiles for Miles

I like to dance,
I like to prance,
I like to play and sing and smile.
I bring some sunshine in my smiles.
And send them along for miles and miles.
With dance and song
I will grow along,
And sunshine bring,
Like birds in spring.

These I Like:
Color – Red
Flower – Yellow rose.
At school – To read.
Show – Blackout of 1943

My Soldier Daddy

I think my soldier Daddy
Is the nicest man I know,
So when I meet him anywhere
I smile and say, “Hello.”

Can You Guess?I can swing high
I do not hold on with my hands,
I do not hold on with my feet.

I like peanuts.
