RU4 Books?

Sidebar WallySidebar BuddySidebar Pete


Sometimes I dream I am a doctor, and sometimes I am a fireman.
Sometimes I pretend I am a police officer and other times I am a pilot.
At times I am a astronaut and other times I am a teacher.
I imagine at times I am a pirate and other times I am a soldier.
There are times I envision I am a postal clerk and other times I am a artist.
There are times I am a scientist and other times I imagine I am a archaeologist.
Sometimes I fantasize I am a builder and other times I am a engineer.
I can picture myself as a zookeeper and at times I am a painter.
Every time I pull out a book and start to read,
I become the main character inside the book.
I LOVE READING BOOKS!

GOD'S CREATION







This is the sky that God created.












This is the stars that light up the sky 
that God created.










This is the sun that shines through the day and divides it from the night with the stars that light up the sky that God created. 








This is the earth that orbits the sun that shines through the day and divides it from the night with the stars that light up the sky that God created.






This is the land with flowers and trees that fills the earth that orbits the sun that shines through the day and divides it from the night with the stars that light up the sky that God created.


This is the waters with fish and whale that flows on the land that fills the earth that orbits the sun that shines through the day and divides it from the night with the stars that light up the sky that God created.




This is the animals large and small that lives on the land surrounded by water that flows on the earth that orbits the sun that shines through the day  and divides it from the night with the stars that light up the sky that God created.






This is the men and women that take care of the animals that live on the land surrounded by water that flows on the earth that orbits the sun that shines through the day and divides it from the night with the stars that light up the sky that God created.




This is the day the Lord has made,
let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Billy's Colorful Shirt


Billy sat down for breakfast. He wore a brand new white t-shirt. He took a bite of his  peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and a dab of jelly landed on his shirt. Billy noticed he had two colors on his shirt, white and purple.  Billy drank his orange juice and he accidentally spilled some on his shirt. He spotted three colors on his shirt, white, purple and orange.  Billy ran outside and wrestled with his dog on the grass. When Billy brushed himself off, he found four colors on his shirt, white, purple, orange and green. Billy took a stroll around the neighborhood when he ran into his friend, George. George offered Billy a chocolate bar. Billy accepted the candy bar and proceeded to eat the whole candy. The chocolate began to melt on Billy's hands. Billy immediately wiped his hands on his shirt. He observed he had five colors on his shirt, white, purple, orange, green and brown. Billy pulled out his ink pen from his pocket. A drop of blue ink landed on his shirt. Billy took a glance at his shirt and saw six colors on his shirt, white, purple, orange, green, brown and blue.
Billy marched back to his yard and noticed a dog bone partially buried in his garden. He stuck his hand in the soil and pulled out the bone. He noticed his hands were full of dirt, so he wiped his hands on his shirt. Billy has seven colors on his shirt, white, purple, orange, green, brown, blue and black. Billy walked into his kitchen for some snack. He had a craving for ice cream. His favorite flavor is strawberry. He licked his ice cream and a drop of strawberry splashed on his shirt. Billy discovered he had eight colors on his shirt, white, purple, orange, green, brown, blue, black and red. Billy's mom walked into the kitchen and her jaw dropped.
"What happened to your shirt?" his mom asked him. Billy told his mom how the jelly, juice, grass, chocolate, ink, soil and ice cream landed on his shirt. Mom shook her head in disbelief. Billy put on a new shirt, a colorful t-shirt that matches his personality. Mom looked into her son's innocent eyes. "Be careful, son," she said. Billy jumped up and down in sheer delight. He couldn't wait for his next adventure.

MAKE YOU SMILE

Smile at your mailman, smile at the cook,
Smile at the neighbor, don't just look.
Smile at your teachers at your school,
Show everyone that smiling is cool.

Smile at the gardener, say a little Hi,
Smile at the dentist, don't be shy.
Wear a smile like the morning sun,
Show the world how it's done.

Smile at your mother you hold so dear,
Smile at the one who needs a cheer.
Smile at the fireman and policeman too,
Smile at the people who are feeling blue.

Smile at the barber, smile at your kin,
Smile at the painter, don't hold it in.
Bring out your smile for everyone to see,
Smile to those who are close to thee.

Smile at the grouch, smile at your foe,
Smile at the doctor whenever you go.
Smile at the folks young and old,
Pull out your smile and let it show.

Go to the park, you can go any place,
To put a smile on every one's face.
You take a stroll and say hello,
And share your smile wherever you go.

Andy the Pretender

Andy walked into his living room and stood in front of his mother and his brother. "Look at me," Andy announced, "I am a doctor." Andy wore a surgical mask and one pair of white gloves. "I am going to be a great doctor." Andy added. "Yes," Mom agreed, "you will save lives and heal sick people." "You can't be a doctor," his brother David interrupted. "You faint at the sight of blood." Andy hung his head down and walked away in shame.
The young boy came back to the room holding on to a basketball. "Look, at me now," Andy proclaimed. "I am a basketball player." "Yes, you are," his mom said, "I can't wait to see you play." David shook his head. "You can't be a basketball player," David retorted, "you are too short." Andy turned around and walked away. Andy sprinted back to the living room and shouted, "I am a airplane pilot." Andy skipped around the room pretending he was flying an airplane. "You are a pilot," mom replied, "you will be the best.""You can't be a pilot," said David, "you are afraid of heights." Andy gave his brother a dirty look and he walked away. Andy ran back to the room and proudly announced he was a librarian. He walked around pretending he was scanning a book he had in his hand. "You are a librarian," his mom said. But David interrupted again, "You can't be a librarian," David exclaimed, "you hate to read any books." Andy stood motionless for a moment. He put his hands on his hip and made a startling comment. "I am no doctor, I am no basketball player, I am no airplane pilot, nor a librarian." "But," Andy added, "I have great imagination. And that means one thing." "What is that," David asked. "I will be a great writer," Andy proclaimed."
 David and Mom both agreed.

It's Book Review Time!

Bring out the paper, bring out your pen.
Buddy Book has done it again.
His latest selection on his book review,
Seven great books selected just for you.

I Want My Hat Back
Jon Klassen 

The bear noticed his hat was gone.
During his search he asked everyone if they have seen it?
The answer was always no.
The bear discovered the rabbit was the guilty party.
A simple story with a sad ending.

Love Twelve Miles Long
by Glenda Armand
Frederick asked his mom how far she walks to visit him.
His mother tells him, twelve miles long.
She recounts every mile on the way, she tells his son, each mile is special.
From praying, singing, listening and much more.
Frederick knew in his heart that his mom's love was twelve miles long. 

Poems I wrote when no one was looking.
by Alan Katz
I rarely review books filled with poems.
But Alan Katz's collection is excellent.
It's filled with simple everyday occurrences,
like hoping for snow so you don't have to go to school.
It's filled with puns and rhymes
that you will enjoy reading again and again.


E-mergency
by Tom Lichtenheld

It's definitely an emergency.
The letter E fell down the stairs,
and is now in the hospital.
The other letters have to make a decision who will substitute for the letter E.
Z is too sleepy, P is always in the bathroom.
The word play is very funny.


The Boy Who Changed The World
by Andy Andrews

A young boy named Norman grew up to help grow super plants.
Norman saved the lives of two billion people.
Henry Wallace hired Norman so he too helped change the world.
George Washington Carver taught Henry Wallace.
Henry learned from George about plants and ways to help people.
A very encouraging book that can inspire those who read it.
