Second Graders write an ode to Good Books!
Library classes have been recognizing April as Poetry Month with a Poetry Open Mic. Some students have even written their own poems to recite aloud. Second graders Mencia S., Kate W., Adriana P. and Kingston S. composed this ode to good books:
There are so many kinds of books for both young and old.
All sorts of stories have been told.
When you turn the pages of a good book,
the story comes alive to make you look.
Some books make you joyful,
and some make you sad.
The world of books is a wonderful place,
but in the end all you want is to be glad.
