Makes Me smile

I recently found my favorite bookmark of all time. I got it free from the library when I was a kid. I loved it so much that I eventually had to protect it by covering it with clear contact paper. The poem on it is:

Books

I got
Books on the bunk bed
Books on the chair
Books on the couch
And every old where

But I want more books
I just can’t get enough
I want more books about
All kinds of stuff, like

Jackie’s troubles
Raymond’s joys
Rabbits, kangaroos
Girls and boys
Mountains, valleys
Winter, spring
Campfires, vampires
Every old thing

I want to
Lie down on my bunk bed
Lean back in my chair
Curl up on the couch
And every old where

And read

more

books.

by Eloise Greenfield. It has a little picture by Rosemary Wells. If my daughter keeps up her love of books, and bringing them all over the house, I may have to pass the bookmark on to her. Maybe not. Every time we move I think I’ve lost the bookmark, but I find it eventually. Right now it’s on the computer table.

More Mac and Cheese, please!

  • If you lose the bookmark, just ask Pumpkin Girl! 😉

    Love hearing where the name came from — I can quite relate. Also to Korea, being in Northern Japan at the moment.

    That’s a great bookmark.
