Teaching book for third grade

I did these watercolor illustrations for the chapter about rhymes. The rhyme is written by danish author Halfdan Rasmussen, and was a lot of fun illustrating. There are such an overload of crazy imagery in his text, so the hard part was to decide what not to illustrate.

Danish is a 'bit' different from english, so here is a translation of the objects I decided to illustrate:

Is på gris = ice rhymes on pig.
And på mand = Duck rhymes on man
Ris på fnis = Rice rhymes on to giggle
Blåt på gråt = Blue rhymes on gray
Nattevind på katteskind = Night wind rhymes on cat fur

Thanks for reading
