I Brought My Grandma's Teeth to School
 
 


by Robert Pottle
 
   

I brought my grandma’s teeth to school to share for show-and-tell.
Billy showed his sneakers. It was more like show-and-smell.
Kevin brought a violin and showed he couldn’t play.
Katie brought he snake to school—too bad it got away.
Our class likes show-and-tell a lot, so we were sad to hear
our teacher say that show-and-tell is canceled till next year.
