My granddaughter Julia loves books. That makes her grandma smile! One of her new favorites to look through is a poetry collection that I gave her for Christmas—Christmas Presents: Holiday Poetry. Yesterday, she even sat in my lap as I read her some of the poems in the book.
Another one of her favorite books is Jamberry. Here are some pictures that I took of her reading it recently.
I hope Julia will continue to love books. I’m happy that she doesn’t chew on them now.
THINGS TO DO IF YOU ARE A BOOK
Be filled with words that tell a taleof a little mouse and a giant whale
of a runty pig and his spider friend
who was true and loyal to the end
of a child who ate just bread and jam
of a funky guy, green eggs, and ham
of a spunky girl named Ramona Q.
of a Jabberwock that a young boy slew.
Be filled with words and tell a tale
that will let my imagination sail.
Be a mystery
or a fantasy
and sing with sounds of poetry.
Between your covers
let there be
a story that’s just right for me.
The Poetry Friday Roundup is at Carol’s Corner.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
