You’ll get the giggles as you try to wrap your mouth around these wacky tongue-twisters about holidays and silly days with animals and other funny friends.
A penguin tells that “The water in Flo’s Inn flows in frozen” – how many times in a row can you recite that right? Perhaps your performance will improve as you practice saying “Having purchased a new plow, my pa plowed proudly!”
Enjoy Steve Mack’s bright artwork as you take a deep breath and try “Six sick sheep on the steep ship sip thick, cheap shakes in the ship’s chic sheep shack” without tangling your tongue around your teeth! (p.s. “chic” sounds like “sheek”)
Endnotes give you directions for creating your very own tongue-twisters to try out on your pals and parents. Another wonderful romp through the world of words by Bryan P. Cleary.
