Jack Prelutsky wrote this wonderful picture book filed with who am I? haikus. I read it to the children without sharing the illustrations. Here is my favorite haiku in the book:
If not for the cat,
and the scarcity of cheese
I would be content.
Who am I? a mouse, of course. After reading together and inferring who the animals are we begin to write our own who am I? haikus. I have a great collection of class sets of National Geographic For Kids magazines which we use to gather facts about our chosen animal. Using nonfiction to create poetry riddles is fun! Christine
