The Last Winter Sunset

A last winter sunset.  Do you see the house looking at the barn, with wide eyes and an open mouth?  Do you see what it’s saying?

Hey, barn!  Do you see what I see?  It’s a beauty of a sunset.  It’s one of the last this winter.  Let’s enjoy this together, okay?

You’re a barn.  E.B. White loved barns.  He said to always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder.  Hey, I think this sunset sure looks like the presence of wonder, don’t you?  Yes, let’s enjoy this together.


About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.

    I love old barns. Unfortunately, it seems like there are fewer each year. During my travels on the back roads of my sales territory, I spied a couple of round ones and even octagonal shaped, as well.

  3. Yes let’s! I like this barn’s face and the sunset is lovely.

    There’s wonder everywhere if we are just open enough to see it!

  14. The house and the barn are definitely on the same page when it comes to enjoying that scene. A sense of wonder should be universal for all…structures included.😀

  15. It is a fabulous picture, Jennie
