    When my grandaughter was in kindergarten and 1st grade, my husband would go read poetry in her classroom. This was one of the children's favorite poems.(Report)Reply

    Nice rhyming poem to read about the pet cat, Macavity! Cat is cleverer than dog and always escapes from any enemy! It is best protection from rat menace at home!(Report)Reply
