Mommy, Where...

by Barb Hensongispsaca

"Oh, Mommy, where do camels live?"
"They live where it is hot.
They store some water in their humps
for when they need a lot."

"Oh, Mommy, where do lions live?"
"They live in Africa.
They eat and sleep from dawn to dusk,
like being at a spa."

"Oh, Mommy where are kangaroos?"
"Australia they call home.
They raise their babies in a pouch
protecting when they roam."

"Oh, Mommy, tell me where are whales?"
"They live under the sea.
They like to swim around all day,
eat krill and just be free."

"Oh, Mommy, where do squirrels live?"
"They live up in the trees.
They store their food for winter there...
some berries, nuts, and seeds."

"Oh, Mommy, where are seals today?"
"They live where there is ice.
They love to slide on snow all day,
and swim when it is nice."

"Oh, Mommy, where do rabbits live?"
"In burrows in the ground.
They love to rob a garden bare
of lettuce growing 'round."

"Oh, Mommy, where do monkeys live?"
"High up in tow'ring trees.
Away from danger they can play
cooled off by summer's breeze."

"Thank you, Mommy, I love you."
"I love you, too, my son.
Well, let's race back to where we live.
Now, hasn't this been fun?"
