I’m a tiger

Striped with fur

Don’t come near

Or I might Grrr

Don’t I come near

Or I might growl

Don’t come near

Or I might


Mary Ann Hoberman



Look at pretty little Kitty

Gnawing on a bone!

How I wish she’d eat some fish

And leave my leg alone.

Doug MacLeod



“Who’s that tickling my back?” said the wall.

“Me,” said a small

Caterpillar. “I’m learning

To crawl.”

Ian Serraillier


Good luck!
