Big Things


What are the biggest things you have seen?

How about whales?

A long submarine?

A merry-go-round?

A tall waterfall?

A huge antlered moose?

A new shopping mall?

How about skyscrapers, reaching for stars?

Or rumbling freight trains with hundreds of cars?

How about bridges that span on and on?

Or skies filled with white clouds like miles of chiffon?

Or the steamer that looks like a city afloat?

Or the iceberg that’s larger than any big boat?

How about trucks?

An ugly junk pile?

An elephant?

Giraffe?

A crocodile’s smile?

Two high mountains?

A yellow school bus?

Rockets?

A castle?

Hippopotamus?

Or what about airplanes with wide spreading wings?

Oh, there are hundreds of wondrous BIG things.
