The Wow's In the Book by Kaitybean

So, for this postdated poetry Tuesday, I'm going to post a poem my Kaitybean wrote for her school's reflections contest. She won first place! Yay, Kaitybean!

The Wow's In The Book
by Kaitybean

When you take a good look in a book,
marvelous wonders behold!
A stroll with the cat, the bear, or the crook,
there’s no end to chance, when you’re in a book!

You can soar through the sky, to the moon,
romp where the elephants roam!
You’re swinging with monkeys, and soon,
you’ll have a big show with baboons!

Just open right up and look inside,
you’ll never want to go back!
Through many adventures you travel wide
on phrases of fun -- a wonderous ride!

Your choices are never ending:
fantasy, nonfiction, or mysteries!
Through your mind questions are racing!
Your “wow’s” are only beginning!

That's really awesome. We'll have to watch out for that one as she grows older.

Seems as if she takes after mother in the talent department! WTG Kaitybean!

That is so great. Looks like she is taking after her mom.

I just wanted to say a quick thank you. I was looking up an image to post on my own blog about being the perfect mom. Lo and behold, you had the perfect blog post! I sat there and read feeling like you had written down my thoughts. I have had many of those same thoughts and feelings and I am glad there is someone else who can relate! I found myself overcompensating for the things that I thought I lacked. I was unhappy and stressed to the max. I am just now learning how to accept myself and find the person I was again!
