How Aunt Sally Went to the Zoo
Ocean Reeve Publishing
What's it all about?
This is the rhyming story of how Aunt Sally - as a birthday treat - was taken to the city zoo hidden inside a picnic hamper, and what happened when she escaped and climbed a tree. Rhyme has always been important to young children, and without it they could be missing out on an important part of their education.
On the very day Aunt Sally turned one,
Matilda-Jane thought it would be such fun
To take her to visit the local zoo.
“I wish Pamela Ann could come with us too!”
“Mother, can we have a picnic please?”
“No!” said mother, just to tease.
“’course, you can, Matilda-Jane, honey.”
So the girls plotted, and counted their money.
Mother packed Daddy’s picnic hamper.
Those girls she really loved to pamper.
“Get inside, you lucky cat,
What a good job you’re not too fat.”
