Fun Poems for More Advanced Readers
on October 9, 2006
What's an umbrellaphant? What's a panthermometer? How about an Ocelock?
Take a bunch of words and scramble them up. Give them a definition with a humorous twist and you've got Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant and Other Poems.
Fun poems about quirky combinations of animals with musical instruments, rain gear, nature and other objects will tie those tongues and make your child laugh. Get silly with your kids by reading the poems or let your readers in progress take a stab at reading the poems themselves.
If the unusual descriptions, like what happens when you cross a shoe and a hornet, don't get you, the illustrations will. The creative drawings are humorous on their own.
Add in the poems and you'll never look at a clock and an octopus the same way again. They form a clocktopus, in case you were wondering.
