My favorite doll
is an action figure
I put her in water
and she grows bigger.

My favorite doll
has lace socks.
She comes to school
in my lunch box.

My favorite doll
has a feather fan.
She sleeps in a bed
I made from a can.

My favorite doll
is getting fat.
She is hiding out
beneath my hat.

My favorite doll
has a dress that's red.
Now she is sitting
on top of my bed.

My favorite doll
likes to run and jog.
She is resting
beside my dog.

I can't find my doll.
Oh, what should I do?
There she is hiding
next to my shoe.


  1. Joy,
    The last stanza reminded me of the kittens that lost their mittens. Funny huh?

    The first stanza gave me a laugh. You have quite an imagination!

  2. Linda,
    This is a beginning draft of a poem using prepositions for over, under, beside, etc. I've got a lot of work to do with it first.
