Anteater! Brachiosaurus!

duck rabbit

I’ve been waiting for Amy Krouse Rosenthal to make a sequel to Duck! Rabbit! I just keep waiting and waiting, so I decided to write my own to use with this summer’s theme Dig Into Reading. I like to use my lap board so I can have the animal stomp. Here it is:

Anteater! Brachiosaurus!

Anteater BrachiosaurusHey look, it’s an anteater!
It’s not an anteater, it’s a brachiosaurus.

South America North America

Listen. It said, “Hola.” It’s an anteater. They live in South America.
No. It said, “Hello,” It’s a brachiosaurus. They lived in North America.

(Shake lap board)

Look. It’s stomping. It’s definitely an anteater.
No, it’s stomping. It’s definitely a brachiosaurus.

(Make slurping and growling noises)

Listen. It’s eating ants and termites. It’s an anteater.
No, it’s growling. It’s a brachiosaurus.

Eating and Drinking

Look. It’s an anteater licking water from the shrub.
That’s not an anteater that’s a brachiosaurus eating leaves from the ginkgo tree.

Jaguar and Allosaurus

Listen. I hear a jaguar growling. It’s coming for the anteater!
No, it’s a pack of Allosauruses coming for the brachiosaurus!

Oh, great. It was scared off.

What are we going to do now?

I don’t know what do you want to do now?

Squirrel Swan

Oh look, it’s a squirrel.

That’s not a squirrel, it’s a swan!

The End.

For the fall I’ll make a sequel to use for a squirrel theme. Stay tuned!
