This is a sweet poem about a little boy named Jack who is climbing his first beanstalk (school), and how his mom is very nervous about this experience. Then it goes on to say how it is the first of many beanstalks in his life, and it encourages parents to cheer our kids on. It is a tear jerker, but something I found many years ago to encourage parents. The author is unknown. I can't find this poem anywhere except in my back to school folder. So, I'm sharing it for everyone to use for free. Enjoy!
