Dinosaurs: Poems and Songs for Children

Hello dear friends!
The topic of the day is dinosaurs!
Brachiosaurus
I don't know why kids like these prehistoric creatures , but they do love stories, poems and songs about them. So, here you'll find two funny poems and an  amusing song devoted to dinosaurs! 
        
         Brachiosaurus

    by Jack Prelutsky

Brachiosaurus had little to do
    but stand with its head in the treetops and chew,

    it nibbled the leaves that were tender and green,
    it was a perpetual eating machine.

Brachiosaurus was truly immense,

    its vacuous mind was uncluttered by sense,

    it hadn't the need to be clever and wise,

    no beast dared to bother a being its size.



 Brachiosaurus was clumsy and slow,
    but then, there was nowhere it needed to go,

    if Brachiosaurus were living today,

    no doubt it would frequently be in the way.




School Rules

    No chomping
    No romping
    No treading on tails
    No clawing
    No climbing
    No gnawing your nails
    No roaring
    No soaring
    No sharpening teeth
    No stamping
    No stalking
    Small friends to eat

    These are rules
    All dinos must follow
    They keep school safe--
    So no one gets swallowed!
