I look forward to these verses again and again. Unlike most bedtime stories, you can set the length of reading time to your situation. the humor stimulates your imagination and makes you want to add verses. Just lots of fun!

Ogden Nash is my favorite poet, and I probably like his poems on different animals the most. They're quicker. Quick poems are prefferred by me, because they don't take too long to read and I can sit and think about them, and even feel like reading them again. Here's one, and I didn't write it, Ogden Nash did:
The ant has made himself illustrious
Through constant industry industrious
So what?
Would you be calm and placid
If you were full of formic acid?

At the risk of seeming rash
I recommend this book by Nash.
I haven't found a rhyme for Ogden,
Although I came close once when fogged-in.
By the way this book is NOT by Etienne Delessert, as listed above, although he is the illustrious illustrator.

I bought this book for my ten year old niece who showed me that she could write pretty good poetry. I also bought Ogden Nash's similar book of poems entitled "Food" - both sent her running to her Mom to show her what I had brought for her to look at. Ogden Nash wrote some very clever poems and they brought a lot of joy to me in the 1980s when I got these books, and again recently when I bought a set for her (I bought them separately and gave them as a set).

(Frederic) Ogden Nash born in Rye, New York, on August 19, 1902.
Died in Baltimore, Maryland, on May 19, 1971

I unique advantages Ogden has was not needing to have a riming dictionary. If the appropriate word did not appear, he would appropriate a word.

This book is a great collection of be best of Ogden as he observed Zoo life.
Least we overlook the addition of Illustrations by the famous Swiss artist, sculptor, illustrator and animator, Etienne Delessert.

My mother gave this to me to read to my kids MANY years ago and it remains one of our favorite 'feel good' books. Just the other day we were laughing over "The Panther" as in the closing lines - and "when called by a panther...don't anther" These are wonderful, funny, family-friendly poems great for kids both young and old.
