I’m Told By My Snail
A Funny Snail Poem for Kids
Buy the book The Biggest Burp Ever
I’m told by my snail that he will not get dressed.
He says that he’s not feeling well.
It’s not that he won’t wear a coat or a vest;
he won’t even put on his shell.
He’s still in his bed as he lets out a yawn.
I tell him I think it’s okay
to wait till tomorrow to put his shell on
since he’s feeling sluggish today.
