Read aloud at a pace they would use in conversation.
Do not read too quickly or too slowly for readers to understand.
Pets are the hobby of my brother Bert.
He used to go to school with a mouse in his shirt.
His hobby it grew, as some hobbies will,
And grew and GREW and GREW until—
Oh don’t breath a word, pretend you haven’t heard.
A simply appalling thing has occurred-
The very though makes me iller and iller;
Bert’s brought home a gigantic gorilla!
If you think that’s really not such a scare,
What if it quarrels with his grizzly bear?
You still think you could keep your head?
What if the lion from under the bed
And the four ostriches that deposit
Their football eggs in his bedroom closet
And the aardvark out of his bottom drawer
All danced out and joined in the roar?
