I wrote this little poem with some of my students a few years ago. It was a class activity inspired by The Important Book by Margaret Wise Brown. I added a few pictures between the lines. I hope you enjoy…
The Important Thing About Dana
The Important thing about Dana is she loves her family and she loves people,
She’s pretty good at drawing faces,
and she’s a writing teacher,
She designs and decorates special places.
Especially the ones that are open and outside where she can be close to nature,
She cooks all sorts of unusual food and her pictures are always great,
Her animals are close to her heart. To her, they’re special creatures,
She loves to hike and picnic, travel, write poetry and read…
But the important thing about Dana is she loves her family and she loves people.
