Children's and YA literature reviews.

Don’t Bring Camels in the Classroom
Kenn Nesbit

An excerpt:

Don’t bring camels in the classroom.
Don’t bring scorpions to school.

Don’t bring mice or moose or mule.

Pull your penguin off the playground.
Put your python in a tree.
Place your platypus wherever
you think platypi should be.
