Children's Book Week Continued...

(Click here for the official website.)

I had an activity planned for today's post, but then I discovered a beautiful poem on the Children's Authors Network:

BOOKS

If I could use
the books I've read,
like building blocks,
they'd stretch ahead--

a road to travel,
river of rhyme,
flight of fancy,
bridge over time.

No feet or boat,
no plane or car
could ever take me
quite so far.

Books stay by me
in joy, in strife,
and one by one,
books change my life.

Have a lovely weekend!
