What a wonderful week of sharing stories with hundreds of children at Telford and Wrekin Schools to celebrate World Book Day! I have had the most incredible week and I have been overwhelmed with all the wonderful comments from children and staff. Here is a poem I have written all about books to celebrate and some photos from the week! Thank you to Grange Park Primary, Newport CE Primary, Newport Infants, Short Wood Primary and Lawley Primary Schools!
Here’s to books what a great invention,
Countless stories, too many to mention!
They take you to places beyond your reality,
Some are escapism, some give you clarity!
What I love about books – they depend on your mood,
For bookworms essential, the words are like food.
As you begin reading, whatever you’ve chosen,
The words create pictures, your body stays frozen.
There’s crime and romance and comedy too,
How to be happy and quotes just for you!
Words to inspire and also distress
Some disappoint and some can impress!
Poems, non-fiction a newspaper story,
Enjoy, it’s delightful words in their glory!
Reading with children is such a delight,
At bedtime, a favourite, then off with the light!
So here’s to the authors and wherever you look,
You will find magic inside a book!
A gift of words, all wrapped up in a paper,
To treasure forever and read again later!
