What I Like to Do
I like to buy a bond
And help my dear old Uncle Sam
To feed our soldiers, I see around
For every day I hear them say
Be sure to buy a bond today.

My Ginger
My little dog’s name is Ginger. He is not a dog but a puppy. He sits up. He rolls over. He is black and brown. I like him. He is not a very good dog, but sometimes he is.

What Am I?
I am very little
I have a busy tail
I run fast.
I run up a tree.
I eat nuts.

A Few of My Likes:
Color – Turquoise blue
Flower – Pink rose.
Movie – Bambi
At school – Writing

Up – Up – Up – up so high
Up – Up – Up – in the sky
We watch Uncle Sam’s planes
Go sailing by.
