For those who missed it, Dominic — who would tell you that he is now 6 and a half — gave an impromptu performance of his poem, "One, Two, Let's Go to the Zoo!", followed by a rap he made up at school. (He created Zoo with his mom while running errands in the city. And yes, she's given permission to use his photo and first name here.)
He recited both from memory, with a little help from picture cue cards drawn by his sister, since he couldn't yet read.
