Have I got a cool creative kid to tell you about today! Meet Landon Staples, kid poet and book lover! Check out that illustration he did on his poem too (he’s standing next to it)!
Landon’s mom emailed me the poem Landon just wrote for school and I LOVED it!! Huge amounts of talent must run in Landon’s family because his great-aunt is the wondercellent (wonderful and excellent) Penny Klostermann (click HERE
to go to her blog, “A Penny and Her Jots”)!
Landon is almost 9 years old and he’s in the third grade. Besides being an awesome poet, Landon likes to read, play with LEGOs, do origami and ride his bike. Landon wants to be a Librarian when he grows up because he LOVES to read!
Here is Landon’s poem for all to enjoy!
Buried in a Book
By: Landon Staples
I’m known to own a lot of books,
but when I start to read,
I just can not get out of it,
for the book is in the lead!
And then when the book is making pictures in my head,
it just feels like my feet are made of lead.
I just simply can not get away,
Because, of course, the book is in the way!
AWESOME poem Landon! I agree with it!!!
