Listen and read-along with this fun poem by, Ladybug.
Come eat with me; little brown bear.
Have a seat, while I pull up a chair.
I’ll pass the honey; lickety-split;
You take it easy; little bear, sit.
Have some breakfast, little green frog.
I’m glad you could leave your smoggy bog.
I will give you some crunchy bugs.
You can have slugs by the jugs.
Come join us, little robin red breast.
You can sit down with the rest.
I will pass some wild bird seeds,
And lots of pine nettle weeds.
Have some breakfast, little baby chick.
I will pass some chicken feed, quick.
You can peep as loud as you please.
Don’t eat too fast, or you’ll sneeze.
Come and dine little scaly alligator.
There won’t be any food, later.
You can eat some crabs and shrimp,
But don’t eat the baby chimp.
Little chimp; don’t cry crocodile tears.
Alligator won’t eat you. Have no fears.
You can eat bananas, one, two and three.
You can eat as many as you can see.
Animal breakfast is over. There is no more.
Oh, no; five more walked through the door.
I am out of food. Now what will I do?
You’ll have to come back tomorrow, at two.
