Today is Week 2 of our Reading Festival. Still time to do the competitions I posted last Monday! Lots to post this week.
Some famous writers and thinkers have said that the world is like a book that we can read. We can read the clouds, the weather, how people act and and animals behave. Check out these hoof prints on the beach I saw today (like a line out of a story book!)
The World is a Book
Today I was at the beach very early
and as I walked it was like I was turning the pages
of a great big book. I could see the bare feet
and the feet in shoes. I could see the birds’
claws and the dogs’ paws. I could see
the horse’s feet that galloped and cantered.
Then I tried to read the clouds in the blue page of sky.
I tried to read this strange thing:
I saw a big furry hedgehoo on the beach.
When I saw that big hairy hoohog on the beach,
like a rusty old toothbrush doormat hat,
I started running faster than the waves!
Have a go at reading a bit of the world either as a little story or a poem.
