7. Think LIke a Tree by Karen I. Shragg

THINK LIKE A TREE Soak up the sun Affirm life's magic Be graceful in the wind Stand tall after a storm Feel refreshed after it rains Grow strong without notice Be prepared for each season Provide shelter to strangers Hang tough through a cold spell Emerge renewed at the first signs of spring Stay deeply rooted while reaching for the sky Be still long enough to hear your own

11. Why I'm Late for School (National Hippo Day, February 15th) by J Patrick Lewis, illustrated from Anna Raff

National Hippo Day, February 15th Why I'm Late for School This hippopotamus thinks I'm a stool. I wish he'd let me up to go to school. If he squatted on my finger or one hand, One knee or elbow, I could understand. But head to toe? That makes it awful hard To have a conversation with the lard! Though not as hard as telling Mr. Bruce My teacher, the old hippo-on-the-loose-

13. Daffodils by William Wordsworth

Daffodils I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils; Beside a lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the Milky Way, They stretched in never-ending line Along the margin of a bay; Ten thousand saw I at a glance,

Parakeets and finches are placed on the stones and poppies in transparent wrapping. How can you be where you never were? And how did you find the way-with your mind your only measure?

November 19th, National Sloth Day Three-Toed Sloth He bats around a luna moth, He counts up all his toes, He wears the smiles of the sloth That everybody knows.

If he could speak, the sloth would shout From all

21. dog by Valerie Worth

dog Under a maple tree The dog lies down, Lolls his limp Tongue, yawns, Rests his long chin Carefully between Front paws; Looks up, alert; Chops, with heavy Jaws, at a slow fly, Blinks, rolls On his side, Sighs, closes His eyes: sleeps All afternoon In his loose skin. This poem is one of the seven poems central to Sharon Creech's Love That Dog, a novel written in verse. "dog" can be found
