2. The absent-minded cook

This poem is fun and Gloria Fuertes won over the children in the most entertaining way. It is a way of telling children that you have to pay attention to things so that they go well. You have to be focused on what you are doing! And if not, tell the chef Fernando…

The cook, Fernando,
spent the day thinking
-without thinking about what he was doing-
he forgot to add the salt,
he never peeled the potatoes
and the stew turned out badly.

Paella without rice.

(How atrocious!)
The worst was the other day…
locked in the kitchen,
he skinned a chicken alive
and put it in the oven…

(It’s been a while…)

And the hen cried trembling:
– Fernando, Fernando,
either turn on the oven
or put the feathers on me.

I’m freezing!

5. How to draw a child

Thanks to its verses, this poetry teaches children to draw a child so that after reciting the poem they are encouraged to pick up paper and pencil and begin to draw, thus enhancing their imagination and creativity.

To draw a child you have to do it with love.

Paint a lot of bangs,
that is eating a waffle;
lots of freckles on his face,
so you can tell he’s a rascal;
– rascal rhymes with bangs and means naughty -.

Let’s continue the drawing: round cheese face.

Since he is a fashionable boy, he drinks syrup with soda.

He wears jeans with a beautiful hole;
American T-shirt and a corduroy hat.

Football boots – because kicking is an artist -.

He’s always laughing because he’s very intelligent.

A story under his arm, that’s why he’s so happy.

To draw a child you have to do it with love.

Don Pato and Don Pito
take a little walk.

-What luck, don Pito,
I found this little guy!

And they both love him
and they both hurt each other.

And everyone is surprised
to see that they scold.

And while they buzz,
dancing the rumba…

The owner comes, another duckling,
and this one takes his guito.

Don’t argue, boys,
don’t argue over a little bit, so that what happened to don Pato and don Pito
never happens to you !

7. The story of a puppy

As with the duck poem and any other animal poem, children love it. In this case, it talks about the story of a puppy who meets a family thanks to the love of some adorable children… until they got tired of him, so what happened to the poor puppy?

They gave the children
a six-day-old puppy.
The puppy hardly walked or saw.

They raised him with a bottle
and sausage mash,
but they didn’t pet him,
they squeezed him,
they squeezed him. what a beating!

The dog made the children
happy, it played tricks on them.
The children
did dirty tricks to the dog.

The dog grew step by step,
and the children no longer paid attention to him.

When the family
went on vacation,
he was abandoned on the road
between some trucks.

And the dog said barking out loud
(may anyone who hears it be amazed) -It makes
me want to stop being
man’s best friend.

He spent days without drinking anything,
without eating anything.
The dog changed breed,
it looked like a greyhound.
He was picked up by an old beggar.
He told her: – I’m going to be your friend,
I’ll cut your bangs
and you’ll be my guide.

The dog waggled his tail,
stretched out his snout,
twitched his nose,
for the first time he was happy.

8. The fly and the mosquito

The author left us this beautiful poem that has a funny rhyme. The children will immediately pay attention to see what happens in the story of the fly and the mosquito that want to get married.

– I am a fly,
I want to marry
a mosquito
that knows how to fly.

– I am a mosquito,
I want to marry
a fly
that knows how to dance.

– I am a fly
that knows how to dance, and I also know how to play
the violin .

– Ti-ri-ri-ri,
With my little legs
I carry the compass.

– I am a mosquito,
Nobody peaks,
and I live happily

9. Poor donkey

This poem is dedicated to donkeys for being such a noble and helpful animal. Unfortunately his name is used as a derogatory synonym to call someone “fool”. But donkeys are not stupid and they are hard workers, so their name is also used to make a simile of hardworking people. It is a beautiful poem where reflection is made on the importance of education in children. The donkey is a wonderful animal and for this reason, he dedicates these well-woven verses to it.

The donkey will never stop being a donkey.
Because the donkey never goes to school.
The donkey will never become a horse.
The donkey will never win races.

What fault does the donkey have for being a donkey?
In the village of the donkey there is no school.
The donkey spends his life working,
pulling a cart,
without pain or glory,
and on weekends
tied to the Ferris wheel.

The donkey does not know how to read,
but he has a memory.

The donkey reaches the finish line last,
but the poets sing to him!
The donkey sleeps in a canvas cabin.

Do not call a donkey a donkey,
call him a “man’s helper”
or call him a person.

10. The paw messes up

“La pata mete la pata” is a very beautiful poem and at the same time fun for children to approach the verses and see the beauty of each one of them. These verses with beautiful rhymes are loved by children since they tell how a paw messes up and what their adventure is to get a new friend.

The plucked leg,
cua, cua, cua,
as it is clumsy,
cua, cua, cua,
has put the leg,
cua, cua, cua,
in a pool.

-Crane, crane, crane!
In the pool there was a little
pig alive and dirty,
with the mud of the pool,
the little pig playing.

The little pig said to him:
– Put out your paw,
beautiful paw.

And the patera paw
gave him a rose.

They walk around the farm
eating figs.

The pig and the paw
have become friends!
