I like books

I really do.

Books with stories

And pictures, too.


Books of birds

And things that grow.

Books of people

We should know.


Books of animals

And places, too.

I like books

I really do!

Hello Book!

by N.M. Bodecker


Hello book!

What are you up to?

Keeping yourself to yourself,

shut in between your covers,

a prisoner high on a shelf.

come in book!

What is your story?

Haven’t you ever been read?

Did you think

I would just pass by you

And pick me a comic instead?

No way book!

I’m your reader

I open you up.

Set you free.

Listen, I know a secret!

Will you share your secrets with me?




by Ann Turner


Do you remember

learning to read?

That book full of squiggles

like ants, escaped.

the teacher’s big thumb

on the page,

your heart beating inside

afraid that all you’d ever see

was ants—

Then a word popped out.

“See,” and another, “cat,”

and my finger on teacher’s

we read “I see cat.”

I ran around the room

so happy I saw words

instead of ants.



Independent Strategies

by Jill Marie Warner


When I get stuck on a word in a book,

There are lots of things I can do.

I can do them all, please, by myself;

I don’t need help from you.

I can look at the picture to get a hint.

Or think what the story’s about.

I can “get my mouth ready” to say the first letter.

A kind of “sounding out”.

I can chop up the words into smaller parts,

Like on or ing or ly,

Or find smaller words in compound words

Like raincoat and bumblebee.

I can think of a word that makes sense in that place,

Guess or say “blank” and read on

Until the sentence has reached its end,

Then go back and try these on:

“Does it make sense?”

“Can we say it that way?”

“Does it look right to me?”

Chances are the right word will pop out like the sun

In my own mind, can’t you see?

If I’ve thought of and tried out most of these things

And I still do not know what to do,

Then I may turn around and ask

For some help to get me through.





Now That I Can Read

I used to need somebody

To sit and read to me.

I’d look at every page they read

And listen carefully.

But now that I am in first grade,

I’m filling up a shelf

With stories, poems, and other books

That I can read myself.




Emergent Reader Poem


I’m trying hard to learn to read

But what’s a kid to do

When there’s a NO and a GO

and a SO and a HO,

And then there’s a word like TO?

Reading BONE and CONE and


Can almost be kind of fun,

But I get upset when I have to believe

That D-O-N-E spells DONE!

It’s plain to see a kid like me

Sure needs a helping hand.

No matter how much I really try

I just don’t understand.

I’m trying hard to learn to read.

Somehow that’s what I’ll do,

But for now if you’ll just read to me

Someday I’ll read to you!




Read to me

by Jane Yolen


Read to me riddles and read to me rhymes

Read to me stories of magical times

Read to me tales about castles and kings

Read to me stories of fabulous things

Read to me pirates and read to me knights

Read to me dragons and dragon-book fights

Read to me spaceships and cowboys and then

When you are finished- please read them again.




A Book Speaks

When you drop me on the floor

I get stepped on – my sides are sore;

Torn-out pages make me groan;

I feel dizzy if I’m thrown;

Every mark and every stain

On my covers gives me pain;

Please don’t bend me, if you do

I don’t want to talk to you;

But we will both be friends together,

If you protect me from the weather

And keep me clean so that I look

A tidy, neat and happy book.




Look in a Book

by Ivy O. Eastwick



in a book

and you will see


and magic

and mystery.



in a book

and you will find


and nonsense

of every kind.



in a book

and you will know


the things

that can help you grow.




In a Story Book

At night when sunshine goes away,

And it’s too dark for me to play,

I like to come inside, and look

For new friends in a story book.





A story is a special thing

The ones that I have read

They do not stay inside the books

They stay inside my head.


Welcome to school!

May this school year bring

You happiness galore,

And may you enjoy it-

Right to the core!




by Eileen Buckard Norris


Books lead folks

To other lands


Bind folks

With friendship bands


Tell folds of bygone days


Bring folks Tomorrow’s way.

What is a Book?

by Lora Duneta


A book is pages, pictures and words

A book is animals, people and birds

A book is stories of queens and kings

Poems and songs- so many things!

Curled in a corner where I can hide

With a book I can journey far and wide

Though it’s only paper from end to end

A book is a very special friend.




Adventures with Books

Author Unknown


Books are ships that sail the seas

To lands of snow or jungle trees

And I’m the captain bold and free

Who will decide which place we’ll see

Come let us sail the magic ship

Books are trains in many lands

Crossing hills or desert sands

And I’m the engineer who guides

The train on its exciting rides. Come, let us ride the magic train

Books are zoos that make a home

For birds and beasts not free to roam

And I’m the keeper of the zoo

I choose the things to show to you

Come, let us visit in a zoo

Books are gardens, fairies, elves

Cowboys and people like ourselves

And I can find with one good look

Just what I want inside a book

Come, let us read! For reading’s fun




Books To the Ceiling

by Arnold Lobel


Books to the ceiling

Books to the sky

My piles of books are a mile high

How I love them

How I need them

I’ll have a long beard by the time I read them





by Beverly McLoughland


The biggest


On the library shelf

is when you suddenly

Find yourself

Inside a book-

(the HIDDEN you)

You wonder how

The author knew.




Open A Book

by Jane Baskwill


Open a book

And you will find

People and places of every kind

Open a book

And you can be

Anything that you want to be:

Open a book

And you can share

Wondrous worlds you find in there

Open a book

And I will too

You read to me

And I’ll read to you.

A book is a very special friend.
