Children love poems for two or more people; reading is more fun with a friend! Children can read the poem with a buddy or with a group of friends, as a morning warm-ups or as part of a poetry unit. Two or more teachers can read it during break time, as part of a formal reading or writing lesson, or during morning messages that celebrate National Poetry Month. Because its written for multiple readers, the poem is just right for dramatic readings and Reader's Theater. Other poems in this select series incorporate onomatopoeia, puns and word play, punch lines, alliteration, and figurative language.
