New Socks by Bob Shea
“Big Orange Monster”
Big orange monster has two heart shaped eyes
And a big, red, mouth
Two leafy green ears,
Blue squiggly hair (actual words are purple squiggly hair, but I didn’t have any purple felt)
Sharp white teeth
And a long bluish grayish nose (again, supposed to be bluish-greenish nose, but I did not have the right color)
But you don’t scare me, Big Orange Monster!
Go away bluish grayish nose!
Go away sharp white teeth!
Go away blue squiggly hair!
Go away leafy green ears!
Go away big red mouth!
Go away heart shaped eyes!
And don’t come back until… next year!
(supposed to be Halloween, but we’re doing one Halloween storytime and I didn’t want to get any official Halloween stories in pre-holiday storytime)
