UNIT III
Even the biggest trees begin life as tiny seeds.
Read about how the little acorn grew big.
Little by Little
“Little by little,” an acorn said,
As it slowly sank in its mossy bed;
“I am improving every day,
Hidden deep in the earth away.”
Little by little each day it grew,
Little by little it sipped the dew.
Downward it sent out a thread-like root
Up in the air sprang a tiny shoot;
Day by day, and year by year,
Little by little the leaves appear,
And the slender branches spread far and wide
Till the mighty oak is the forest’s pride.
New words
hidden, slowly, downward, slender, mighty, branches,
pride, improving, sipped, shoot
