book reader

Books are what I like the best

They’re not just toys like all the rest

That break, or get old, or don’t want to play

A book gets better every day.

Sit down and open it – soon you’ll find

A whole new world jumps up in your mind,

People and places and all sorts of things –

Dragons and princesses, goblins and kings,

Dinosaurs walking the earth like thunder,

Ancient Egyptians who make you wonder,

Books about planets and space exploration,

The truth about rocks, and the birth of our nation.

And perhaps the most interesting story of all

That tells of the Prince who is going to call,

And even a picture to show how he looks –

Now these are the things that I like about books.


One response to “Books

  1. This was wonderful. Books never leave you in times of despair, rather they sit patiently waiting for you to come back and presume reading. 🙂
