I stumbled across this poem in Prelutsky's collection Zoo Doings. As soon as I read it, I knew it would be perfect to use with this year's summer reading theme: Dig Into Reading. The first line reads, "There's a gopher in the garden, and he's eating all the onions." As usual, I used a mixture of clipart and coloring pages for patterns.
The pieces are all felt with puff paint details. The pieces are gopher, onion, broccoli, beet, bean, carrot, corn, cauliflower, parsley, peas, pumpkin, radish, greens, cabbage, and watermelon.
