Excerpt

A Seal.

SEE, chil-dren, the Fur-bear-ing Seal; Ob-serve his mis-di-rect-ed zeal: He dines with most ab-ste-mi-ous care On Fish, Ice Water and Fresh Air A-void-ing cond-i-ments or spice, For fear his fur should not be nice And fine and smooth and soft and meet For Broad-way or for Re-gent Street And yet some-how I of-ten feel (Though for the kind Fur-bear-ing Seal I har-bor a Re-spect Pro-found)


The Giraffe.

SEE the Gi-raffe; he is so tall There is not room to get him all U-pon the page. His head is high-er--

****.

This book was written in 1899 and it contains 24 poems about animals. The poems are not educational, they are not teaching facts about the animals. Most poems are 12 lines long, but some are a bit shorter or a bit longer. Hyphens are used to make the poems easier to read for kids.

Its a nice little book whith short poems that can be read to young children or be read by themselves by children who are learning how to read. There are no pictures in the book.
