Twelve audio poems for children and teachers! Start your day by playing a humorous and surprising poem perfect for elementary age children.
These audio files, from Mark’s Parents’ Choice Award-Winning audio book, The Delicious Chocolate Donut (And Other Off-Kilter Poems), match the 12 hard copy poems presented under the same name.
This collection features the wonderful vocal talents of actors Biff Baron and Chris Laitta and includes the following poems: I Sure Love Pancakes, A Serious Talk from My Parents, A Bug!, The Dinner Guest, The Delicious Chocolate Donut, Hiking to a Waterfall, The Jazz Scat Singer, My Little Life, Mariah's Packed Lunch, Grand Entrance, Poor Reggie White, and Nuh Uh!
Poetry is also perfect for April, National Poetry month! Or put the mp3 files on a player and put the book and player in your classroom’s listening center. Your students, who will listen to the poems over and over, can work on reading for fluency, listen for onomatopoeia, puns and word play, alliteration, and figurative language, or simply tune in for the joy of hearing humorous poetry read aloud.
Inspired by Prelutsky, Silverstein, and Roald Dahl, the Delicious Chocolate Donut Audio Book is a look at the world through a child's eyes. A disappearing chocolate donut, a leaping lunch bag, spilled spaghetti, klutzy kids, a plethora of pancakes - you can find them in the complete collection available on Amazon.com.
