The original version contains five stanzas, the first being most familiar. The rhyme paints a picture of stars in the sky using fun and easy-to-grasp similes. This teaches children the basic use of comparisons and figures of speech cementing a foundation for early literacy, and developing the imagination's visual vocabulary. Due to its popularity, "The Star" has been frequently parodied, for example by the Mad Hatter in "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland":Twinkle, twinkle, little bat!How I wonder what you're at!Up above the world you fly,Like a tea-tray in the sky."Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" is sung in the tune of "Ah! vous dirai-je, Maman," a French melody on which Mozart composed twelve variations.Download a printable coloring page for Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (just click print): to a narration of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star:"Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" lyrics:Twinkle, twinkle, little star,How I wonder what you are;Up above the world so high,Like a diamond in the sky!Twinkle, twinkle, little star,How I wonder what you are.When the blazing sun is gone,When he nothing shines upon,Then you show your little light,Twinkle, twinkle all the nightTwinkle, twinkle, little star,How I wonder what you are.Look at other versions:
