ZIP, MY ZIGZAG ANT

 

Zip is my pet ant.

He is very very little.

Zip is black.

I just got Zip today.

He is a very happy ant.

He can zip, zip, zip every place.

Zip will zigzag up my leg.

He will zigzag up my back.

He will go up, up, up on my nose.

Zip will sit on my hand.

He will crawl on my cookies.

Zip can sleep on that mat.

Zip is a good friend already.

I like him a lot.

I hope he will like me too.
