Ice Cream Shop Animal Song
by Elaine Lowd

A cat and a dog went to an ice cream shop for some ice cream.  As they went there, they met a monkey.  Each table held four people each.  Four people each.  Four people each.  On their way, they met a zebra who wanted to come too.  Now there's enough people for this table!

Each table had a cat, a dog, a monkey, a zebra!  So, all the tables were full.  Everyone else wasn't there.  They were at the store or at home.

So cool she sleeps in sunglasses.  (4/5/13)

The Circus Flower

by Elaine Lowd

   Once upon a time, a clown picked a flower.

   The circus flower said, "No, no, you're from the circus.  I help the circus with all my shine and sparkles.  I must be planted in the ground."

   "You can join the circus.  I'll plant a new flower."

   And so he did.

   And the circus flower did.

   And it was fun.
