THIS BOOK (Monday Poem)

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 school.

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.
