Another thing that we had to do was read a book about poetry. I am typically NOT a fan of poetry but this book was so cute. This is Ambry's favorite poem out of the book. I highly recommend this book too. It was called "Behold the Umbrellaphant". Basically they took common day objects and an animal and combined them. The one below is called "The Tearful Zipperpotamuses". Too cute. :)
The dreary ZIPPERPOTAMUSES
Stand around and mope...
If all their zippers opened,
They would surely have no hope.
Their zippers help contain them,
So they worry and they fret
That their insides will fall outside,
Though this hasn't happened yet.
Those fearful ZIPPERPOTAMUSES
Find it very hard
To keep their zippers zippered,
So they're constantly on guard.
Perhaps they wouldn't spend their days
With such a sense of dread,
If they took out all those zippers
And put buttons in instead."
See? Cute, right? Ambry was cracking up. Here is a link to the book on Amazon.
