POEM ON BOOKS
Books are of so many different kinds,
When children read books what comes to their minds?
A serious kid reads books for hours,
A playful one turns books into towers.
Some kids read recipe books to cook,
And some turn pages and just have a look.
A shy kid uses books to hide,
And some kids use books to fight.
But I love to read books till the day ends,
Indeed, books are my best friends.
Monkey swings on the tree,
the crocodile finds food with ease.
While the lion growls at day,
and the hippo on the pond it lay.
Meanwhile, the birds tweet and tweet,
the squirrels found the yummy food to eat.
Although, the giraffe is so tall,
The trunk of elephant is long and strong.
While the leopard runs so fast,
But the turtle came last.
The rabbits go hopping,
and bear go growling!
This is my dream rainforest,
I found this habitat the best!!
