Books by Sunny Thomas (Highly Commended)

A book is a tool that everyone can use,
For hours and hours they will keep you amused.

From facts and figures to science and diggers,
It is up to you what your mind triggers.

They make you feel emotional, happy and sad,
l love happy endings, that I am glad.

Books can be recycled, hand them around,
From op shops to garage sales they can be found.
.

Favourite stories will never grow old,
As to many children they can be retold.

So when you are bored or want something to do
Just pick up a book and read it through.

Barbie by Isabella Weise (Highly Commended)
