Primary Talks for Sunbeams

Elizabeth has been asked to give a talk in primary next week. I did what I normally do and turned to the free talks you can find on line for ideas. I usually read through them to help me come up with something that would fit my child, and then I talk with the child about the topic and try to write the talk in their own words as much as possible. When Ethan gave his talk a few months ago about the prophets testifying of Christ, he told the story of Abinidi, which is his favorite, in his own words. But I've never had a sunbeam give a talk before. At that age, my boys stuck to scriptures and prayers. I will still talk to her, but I don't know how much I'm going to get out of her. The topic is "When I am Confirmed I Receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost". I've looked around online, and if I can't get anything out of her, I'm wondering if it is inappropriate for a 3 year old to just give a poem for the talk. The talk here: http://sites.google.com/site/primarytalks/home/may-2010/when-i-am-confirmed-i-receive-the-gift-of-the-holy-ghost begins with a poem that was in the August 2005 Friend. It seems like it's plenty of words for a 3 year old to learn and keep their attention on, and the rhyming of the poem I think would help keep her attention on what she's doing, so would help her both learn the talk, but also understand what she's talking about. Again, I do plan to talk to her first to see if she has anything to add, but if not, is it okay to just have her share the poem and then end in a short testimony?
