HOW DO 

CHILDREN TASTE?

By Josie Whitehead

How Do Children Taste

The monster said: 

How I wish I could sing like a bird in a tree.
How I wish that I smelt like a rose or sweet pea.

      How I wish that I looked like a famous film star.
      How I wish that I tasted like a sweet chocolate bar.

How I wish that I felt – well how could a child feel?
Well pinch one and feel one, but expect a loud squeal!               
     You can hear their loud shouting which can deafen the ear,
     But I think they taste uggggh -  yucky, so you’ve nothing to fear.
