Listen to a Poem by Jack Prelutsky
Listen to me reading a selection from "Louder Than a Clap of Thunder," a poem from my book, The New Kid on the Block.
The full version:
Below is the poem from my book. As you read, you can listen to me recite
the poem and hear truly amazing sound effects.
a Clap of Thunder
a clap of thunder,
louder than an eagle screams,
louder than a dragon blunders,
a dozen football teams,
louder than a four alarmer,
or a rushing waterfall,
louder than a knight in armor
jumping from a ten-foot wall.
Louder than an earthquake rumbles,
louder than a tidal wave,
louder than an ogre grumbles
as he stumbles through his cave,
louder than stampeding cattle,
louder than a cannon roars,
louder than a giant's rattle,
that's how loud my father SNORES!
