Std. 7 English - The Owl and the Pussy Cat - by Dipu Santhosh

Dear all,
It is very interesting when someone reads out a poem to us. Hearing the lines being recited helps us understand the poem better. With this in mind, I have made some short videos of poems read out, along with short introductions, from the English text book of Class 7.
Here is the first of the bunch. Special thanks to Dr. Lal C. A. for the script and narration..
Hope you will find it useful!

Thanking u in advance..
