Pet Poems from the Box of Rhyme


Through these 13 humorous animal poems by Ruth Lennard, we experience the adventures of owning a pet. ‘Lionel the Lion Dog’ is a heartwarming tale of a prodigal pet, whilst another dog, which likes digging, teaches his master a lesson about gadgets! In the popular, ‘A Little Trim’, there’s a shaggy dog with plenty of ambition – could he one day be a star? Meanwhile, the catchy chorus of ‘Tuna Fish Cat’ reminds pet owners about the urgency of mealtimes! You will also meet a fugitive hamster with a liking for cookies and a pet hedgehog which has a great time at the allotment. Illustrated in watercolor by Marianne Eyles-Smith, these pets will leave a lasting impression with children and animal lovers of all ages. With so many likeable characters, which will be your favorite? Complimentary literacy activities are available online.
