The Image of you?


Cathy is basking in excitement ever since she joined Picture Book Corner.
She has the same interest as Buddy, Pete and Wally.
Cathy loves to read books. She also has a gift in drawing.
She can draw animals, people and all kinds of scenery.
Cathy's enthusiasm continued until she met a classmate at school.
This student, Sarah, seems to have it all. She attracts lots of attention.
She wears fancy clothing, and walks around in expensive shoes.
Cathy began  to feel inferior around Sarah. She questioned herself, what if
she wore elegant clothing, and bought high priced shoes?
Can she become renowned like Sarah?
Cathy stood in front of a mirror and scanned every part of her body.
She suddenly realized her image was fine.
She noticed her clothing and shoes matched her personality.
How is your image?
 Listed below is a poem that ask you questions.

Look into the mirror, what do you see?
Is it someone, you are proud to be?
The face you show, is their a smile?
The clothes you wear, is it your style?
Look into the mirror, what do you find?
Is it someone, who is friendly and kind?
Is it someone, who is hard to please?
Or someone, who is always at ease?
Look into the mirror, what can you tell?
Is it someone, who is looking well?
Does it show, what you want to be?
Ask yourself, is it the real me?

Cathy Crayon

Photobucket


She's a charming little girl, with a big heart inside,
Always full of cheer, you can see it in her eye.
I can see her smile, it shines really bright,
It's like having the sun, coming out in the night.
Everytime I see her, she's friendly as can be,
A wonderful person, I know you would agree.
She's a charming little girl, with a big heart inside,
Always full of cheer, you can see it in her eye.
I can see her smile, it's bright as sunshine,
It's like having the sun, coming down from the sky.
She's always full of cheer, I can see it everytime,
This charming little girl, who is a friend of mine. 

Cathy Crayon is
A positive, up lifting, easy to get along with.
It's my great pleasure to introduce you,
 the new member of Picture Book Corner.
CATHY CRAYON
Stay tuned, you will hear from Cathy very soon.

The Inner Light


There was a gentleman, who was standing by a door,
Who told me a message, that I never heard before.
It is always better to learn everything that I can,
So I would be ready, to follow God's plan. 
He pointed to a door, with a sign you couldn't miss,
With the words inscribed, "there's more to life than this."
He invited me to go, to hear what they had to say,
So I can learn the truth, that will help me every day.
I went inside and saw four candles with a flame,
With a sign on each one, taped with their own name.
The first candle said, " I am JOY to bring you harmony,"
"I can shed some light on how life can be."
"But there is no one around that I can see,"
"So my flame has gone out of me.
The second candle said, "I am FAITH that you need today,"
"I want to show you someone that can lead the way."
"But there is no one around, who wants to stay,"
"So my flame has gone away."
The third candle said, "I am LOVE that brings unity,"
"I am here to reveal, how good it can be."
"But no one comes along, so they can see," 
"So my flame has gone out of me."
The message was full of riddles that I didn't understand,
The candles should all be lit and burn till the end.
There had to be a reason why, the flame went out,
But who can tell me, what this is all about?
The fourth candle took his turn, he still had some light,
"My name is HOPE," he said, "you could use me tonight."
So I took the candle of HOPE and lit the other three,
I finally got the message, they were trying to tell me.
Each candle represents, FAITH, HOPE, JOY, and LOVE.
It's God who bestows all four, from heaven above.
They are mine to receive, right from the start,
They have a place, deep down in my heart.

The House That Mom Cleaned





This is the house that mom cleaned.










This is the cat, that lived in the house that mom cleaned.







This is the dog, that chased the cat, that lived in the house that mom cleaned.








This is the girl, that roused the dog, that chased the cat, that lived in the house that mom cleaned.







This is the boy, that bumped the girl, that roused the dog, that chased the cat, that lived in the house that mom cleaned.







This is the bowl, filled with cream corn, that splattered the boy, that bumped the girl, that roused the dog,that chased the cat, that lived in the house that mom cleaned.





This is the baby, dressed adorned, that knocked the bowl, filled with cream corn, that splattered the boy, that bumped the girl, that roused the dog, that chased the cat, that lived in the house that mom cleaned.




This is the dad, tattered and torn, that fed the baby, dressed adorned, that knocked the bowl, filled with cream corn, that splattered the boy, that bumped the girl, that roused the dog, that chased the cat, that lived in the house that mom cleaned.


This is the neighbor, who blew the car horn, that scared the dad, tattered and torn, that fed the baby, dressed adorned, that knocked the bowl, filled with cream corn, that splattered the boy, that bumped the girl, that roused the dog, that chased the cat, that lived in the house that mom cleaned.


This is the mom, tired and worn, that waved at the neighbor, who blew the car horn, that scared the dad, tattered and torn, that fed the baby, dressed adorned, that knocked the bowl, filled with cream corn, that splattered the boy, that bumped the girl, that roused the dog, that chased the cat, that lived in the house that mom cleaned.





This is the family who has sworn, to wash the floor in the house that mom cleaned.

Books, Books, Books.


You can pick em, you can choose em,
you can stack em, you can read em.
With so many books to choose,
you have nothing to lose,
To read Buddy's book review,
he chose seven great books for you.

                                          The Dancing Clock
                                                        by Steve Metzger


There is a clock in Central Park that draws the attention from Milo the snow monkey.
He loves to watch and listen to the dancing clock instead of playing with his friends.
At every hour, two monkeys ring a bell and assorted of animals play along.
From a bear with a tamborine to a hippo with the fiddle, Milo wants to join them.
When he finds the gate unlocked, Milo joins the group while the crowd cheers on.
But soon when the crowd leaves and the gate is locked, Milo is hungry and feels cold.
When the zookeeper opens the gate, Milo realized a clock can never replace a friend.

                                            Colors of Me
                                                        by Brynne Barnes


A young child plans to color the pictures that she drew.
But then she wonders which color to choose.
The curious mind  imagines if rain had color, would it still make a puddle.
If a flower had no color, would it still smell sweet.
The child soon realized that the world is full of colors like you and me.

The Talent Show
by Jo Hodgkinson

Four friends decided to enter a talent show.
A small red bird wanted to join too.
The four friends laughed at the bird.
They told the bird, you're too small.
The four formed a band  and began to practice.
They determined to find someone who can sing.
A stranger came along to help them.
The stranger sang an amazing song,
the band knew they found their singer.
Soon the band discovered the stranger was the red bird,
they realized they made a mistake.
The five members performed before a crowd.
The judge gave the band a prize,
for their talent and not their size.
