Tails and Tales



Why Epossumondas Has No Hair on His Tail by Coleen Salley (Harcourt Children's Books)

Super-sized Tails by Jacqueline Jules

Monkeys need tails to grab,

Horses to swat flies.

But why do squirrels need

tails of super size?

Working like a blanket

On a frosty winter night,

A bushy tail can warm,

and chase away frostbite.

Better yet, a fluffy tail

Prevents a nasty fall.

As a handy parachute,

It cannot be too small.

 

A Beach Tail by Karen Lynn Williams (Boyds Mills Press)

 

Have You Ever Seen a Tail?

Have you ever seen a bunny tail, a bunny tail, a bunny tail?

Have you ever seen a bunny tail

wiggle this way and that?

Wiggle this way and that way

Wiggle this way and that way

Have you ever seen a bunny tail

wiggle this way and that?

 

Have you ever seen a whale tail, a whale tail, a whale tail?

Have you ever seen a whale tail

Splash this way and that?

Splash this way and that way

Splash this way and that way

Have you ever seen a whale tail

splash this way and that?
