Panda and Blondie Go to the Beach

“Blondie,” says Panda, “I want to go to the beach!”

“Me, too,” says Blondie, “Let’s go to the beach!”

Blondie finds her hat, her bikini, her floatie, her towel.

Panda finds  his cap, his goggles, his shorts, his towel

“But Panda,” says Blondie, “it’s starting to rain.”

“Oh, yes,” says Panda, “that looks like the rain.”

They stand on the veranda, and look out at the rain.

They hold out their paws, and grab onto the rain.

They run from the veranda and dance in the rain.

They jump on the tramp and do flips in the rain.

Then Panda and Blondie get tired and go back

to the veranda, flop down in their chairs, take a nap.

 

Johanna Aitchison

 

 

Johanna suggests:  Write a poem about what Panda and Blondie do at your house.

You could also imagine where Panada and Blondie go! Write a poem and do a picture of you like.

Or write a poem or do a picture, a painting or collage of your teddy.

Make a 60 second movie starring your teddy.

Make teddy biscuits.
