Children's poetry is, I think, the perfect format to explore all things slimy, spooky, or strange. It's a
safe way for kids (and adults) to get a little sense of something uncomfortable without actually getting their fingers gooey or their toes bitten off! And very often, it brings on the giggles!
Here is my favorite poem from MONSTER GOOSE. Enjoy, and then be sure to check out today's Poetry Friday round-up over at The Logonauts.
Sat in the corner
Eating a people potpie.
He bit his own thumb
And cried, "Oh, yum, yum,
A tasty young morsel am I"!
