Continents of the World
By A.A. Anderson
Illustrated by _____________________________
To learn the seven continents,
Think of the letter “A”
And when you’re down to only one,
An “E” will save the day.
There’s Africa, Antarctica,
Australia, Asia too.
The oceans run between them
With their waters deep and blue.
There are also two Americas-
North and South, you see.
Now we’re coming to the end-
Europe starts with “E”!
