Animal Haiku Riddles-Who Am I?

Our Animal Riddle Haikus were a hit at conference time. Although we wrote ours as riddles, a haiku does not have to be a riddle. However, it does need to have three lines with a syllable pattern of 5-7-5.

Many parents had a chance to read a few of these when they were in the hall, waiting. Today, we are posting our Animal Haiku Riddles, so those who have not had a chance can read them and make their guesses.

TIP: The answers for the riddles are found at bottom of the blog entries. Good luck figuring out our haiku riddles!


What if you were suddenly given $1,000? You can’t spend it on yourself. How would you spend the money, and why would you spend it that way?
