My Elephant Thinks I’m WonderfulRate this poem
From the book My Hippo Has the Hiccups
My elephant thinks I’m wonderful.
My elephant thinks I’m cool.
My elephant hangs around with me
and follows me into school.
My elephant likes the way I look.
He thinks that I’m fun and smart.
He thinks that I’m kind and generous
and have a terrific heart.
My elephant thinks I’m brave and bold.
He’s proud of my strength and guts.
But mostly he likes the way I smell.
My elephant thinks I’m nuts.
