Happy Valentine's Day

Good Morning to You, Valentine (edited by Lee Bennett Hopkins) is one of our family's favorite books of poetry. All through the year the children will pull it from the shelf and read the poems - both silently and aloud.

This is one of the poems they like best:

I climbed up the door
And shut the stairs
I said my shoes
And took off my prayers.

I shut off the bed
And climbed into the light
And all because -
She kissed me Goodnight.

(They used to ask Steve if that was how he felt whenever we kissed.)
