Since this is National Reading Challenge Month, this blog is going to be a little different.  I enjoy writing poems about what I call The Alphabet Children, children in Miss Prim’s Middle School classroom.  Each child is quite unique and a real challenge to Miss Prim (that’s an understatement).  Anyway, I thought I would share one of the poems that deals with reading.  If by chance you would like to read more about  Miss Prim’s unique students, let me know.



A boy named Humphrey Higgins Hook

Said he would NEVER read a book.

He wouldn’t even take a look

At pictures in a picture book.

But clever was Miss Prim, indeed.

She wanted Humphrey to succeed,

So she wrote a clever little book

About a boy named Humphrey Hook.

This made Humphrey curious indeed.

In fact, it made him want to read

About the boy named Humphrey Hook.

And that’s all it really took

To get Humphrey Higgins Hook

To finally read a book.
