Reader Description

How does a dog say hello? How does a bee tell other bees where the nectar is? Animals may not talk like we do, but they all have their own ways of communicating. These poems tell you how.

After you have completed the Reader

The poems in this book tell you how animals "talk" to each other. Choose an animal that isn't in the book. Describe the ways it communicates. Write some sounds that describe the actions and sounds it makes. Use these words to write a poem showing how this animal talks.
