Mother and Grandma

(Crystal Bowman)

My mother feeds me tuna fish
With broccoli on the side.
But Grandma gives me candy
When my mouth is open wide.

My mother slices apples
And oranges for dessert.
My grandma brings me doughnuts
If she finds out I am hurt.

My mother makes me drink my milk
Most every single night.
But Grandma gives me ice cream bars
When I do something right

My mother cooks up rice and beans
That have an awful taste.
So I say, "See ya later,
I'm going to Grandma's place!"

Little Nut-Tree

(Roald Dahl)

I had a little nut-tree,
Nothing would it bear.
I searched in all its branches,
But not a nut was there.

"Oh, little tree," I begged,
"Give me just a few."
The little tree looked down at me
And whispered, "Nuts to you."

The Candy Shop

Come with me to the candy shop
While I get a lollipop.
Caramel, peppermint, chocolate drop.
What shall I buy at the candy shop?

Like Mother Made

(Hariett Ford)

Of all things said about the cake
Unkindest were the words,
"It's not like Mother used to make."
I wish I hadn't heard.
Like Mother used to make indeed.
Of course not, you forget,
Mixes, Teflon, microwaves were not
invented yet!

But just to please my gourmet groom,
I baked a cake from scratch.
No mixes, nothing artificial
Went into the gooey batch.
It had the strangest sunken place,
The center was a pool of runny
frosting poured thereon
Before the cake was cool.

I stood with rolling pin in hand and
dared him to criticize my cake.
"Why, Darling," said he, "this is grand."
"It's just like Mother used to make!"

Baking Cookies with Mommy

(Valerie Gallup)

Mommy and I have so much fun
Baking cookies for everyone!
I love to eat them
They are so yummy!
'Specially the ones
That are in my TUMMY!

Grandma's Cookie Jar

(Bernice Peers)

When I went to visit Grandma
I was always thrilled
For I knew she kept
A cookie jar well-filled.

Quickly I removed my wraps
And Grandma led the way
Into a pungent kitchen
With treasures on display.

Peanut butter cookies,
Gumdrops tart and sweet,
Macaroons and gingersnaps
And brownies for a treat.

With a glass of buttermilk
I tasted everything,
Grandma looking on at me
As though I were a king.

I love to visit Grandma,
It's a trip I most enjoy
Though manhood's now replaced
That eager little boy.

Cookie Jar

A house should have a cookie jar,
For when it's half past three
And children hurry home from school
As hungry as can be,
There's nothing quite so splendid
In filling children up
As spicy, fluffy ginger cakes
And sweet milk in a cup.

A house should have a mother
Waiting with a hug
No matter what a boy brings home,
A puppy or a bug.
For children only loiter
When the bell rings to dismiss
If no one's home to greet them
With a cookie and a kiss.

Animal Crackers

(Christopher Morley)

That is the finest of suppers, I think;
When I am grown up and can have what I please,
I think I shall always insist upon these.

What do you choose when you're offered a treat?
When Mother says, "What would you best like to eat?"
Is it waffles and syrup, or cinnamon toast?
It's cocoa and animal crackers that I love most!

Page Idea

Use this quote with appropriate pictures.
Someone's in the kitchen with Mommy, Someone's in the kitchen I know,
Someone's in the kitchen with Mommy, eating all the cookie dough.

Ice Cream and Frozen Treats

Vanilla Please

(Patricia White)

I really do like ice cream--
All kinds, like peach and cherry,
Tutti-frutti, caramel,
Chocolate and strawberry.

But Mommy says on special days
When I'm dressed up in frills
That I must choose vanilla--
Just in case of spills.

Ice Cream Colors

We have ice cream, the best in town,
Let us begin with chocolate brown.

Now, let us scoop us some bubble-gum pink,
It is sweet and yummy, the best, some think.

Here is ice cream minty and green,
It is the creamiest I have ever seen.

Yellow ice cream is lemony and tart,
We like its taste from the very start.

Scoops of blueberry would make my day,
Look at all this ice cream, hip, hip hurray!

Red ice cream is a strawberry delight,
All these scoops are a heavenly sight.

Vanilla white is a popular flavor,
It tastes very good to an ice-cream craver.

Purple ice cream really gives me a kick,
Good and yummy till the very last lick.

Ice cream, ice cream, what a cool sensation,
We love ice cream in any combination!

Pie and Pudding


Shoo-Fly Pie

Shoo-fly pie
And apple pan dowdy
Make your eyes light up
And your stomach say 'howdy'.

Shoo-fly pie
And apple pan dowdy
I never get enough
Of that wonderful stuff.

(James Horner)

Popcorn crowding all around,
Hot air blows them round and round,
Yellow corn kernels poppity pop,
One after another, when will they stop?

Whirling, swirling the popcorn pops,
In a bowl they quickly drop,
Fluffy popcorn, grab a bunch,
Light and tasty, eat them--crunch.


Popcorn is really neat,
Fun to make and fun to eat.
Popcorn is a pop-pop, ever poppin,
never stoppin, show stoppin,
zany kind of treat!

Potato Chips

(Anthony Gallagher)

A potato chip is something
Never ceasing to amuse.
I love its funny wrinkles
And the crunchy way it chews.

Snack Time

It is time for us to have our snack,
Please sit down,
Hands on your lap,
Wait till everyone is served their food,
Then eat your snack, yum, yum,
It's good.
