Spring is a wonderful season. There are animals every where we look. I made up these little riddles to help the children think more about animals they see every day.

I have soft fur.
I hop in bushes.
I wiggle my little nose
and thump my great big feet.
What am I?

I run in the pasture.
People ride me.
I say “Nay, Nay.”
What am I?
(A Horse)

I fly in the air.
I eat seeds and worms.
I say “Tweet, Tweet.”
What am I?

I am soft and fluffy.

I say “Meow, Meow.”
What am I?

I slither on my tummy.

We live in shells.
We eat bugs and fruit.
