Close Your Clothes book - velcro buckles page

    Newer Older

    The facing page poem reads:

    A man and his dog were out walking one day
    Through a field of dry grass that looked kind of like hay.
    Then later he petted his doggie’s soft fur
    Where a grass seed was stuck, a seed known as a burr.

    He looked at the seed – it was covered in hooks
    That held tight to the dog hair’s looped crannies and nooks.
    Inspired, he made hook and loop strips to use
    As buckles (called Velcro) for everyone’s shoes.
