Poem I shared as a birthday bookmark!

I copied the poem below from this book:

and printed it onto cardstock
and shared with staff and students
on my birthday today 10/11/12!!

This Book
By Avis Harley

This book is the best –
I woke up to read it
Before getting dressed.

This book is so cool –
It’s the first thing I grabbed
When I rushed in from     

This book is a winner –
I forgot I was hungry.
I almost missed dinner.

This book is just right –
I’m reading by flashlight
    deep into the night
Deliciously thirsty to see how
    it ends.

Books are such mind-thrilling
Spine-tingling friends.
