Watching the Animals

     Do you like visiting the zoo? If you have children, I'm sure you do that when you can. I don't think we ever outgrow the pleasure of watching animals though. When we get to take our grandchildren to the zoo, it's fun to not only watch the animals, but also to watch the children enjoying the animals!

     Hope you enjoy my little poem. If you'd like to read more, please visit my children's website and the poetry for children's page of my inspirational website.

     Which are your favorite animals?


A monkey was playing in a tree,
Swinging from limb to limb.
The things he did were fun to see,
And I liked watching him.
 A mighty lion was lying around,
Resting out in the sun,
Then giving a roar, got off the ground
And suddenly started to run.
 
An elephant who was big and gray
Lifted her trunk up high,
Wanting others to keep away
Since her baby was sleeping nearby.
 
I like the animals, large and small,
And you can enjoy them too,
Together where you can see them all
Whenever you visit the zoo.

Loved the poem, Connie! Going to the zoo is one of my favorite things to do. We try and visit the zoo where ever we go on holiday. :-)

My daughter went on a field trip with her class to the zoo last week. She really liked it.

Janet, that is such fun, isn't it!

Thanks, Sharon. Visiting the zoo is a great activity for all ages.

Angela, my oldest grandson went to the zoo with his class today, and I'm sure having loads of fun.

Zoo animals are among those featured in my Animal Sound Mix-up book. Have you checked it out?
