Our Junior Poet Laureate has written this poem to celebrate World Book Day 2018 at Latymer.
World Book Day 2018
Have you ever wanted to teleport away,
Far away from the world today?
Well my friend, you can do it with ease,
By simply picking up a book to please.
A turn of a page
Will get you engaged,
If could be a fantasy, crime or biography,
Or even about English, Science or even Geography.
One glance could get you hooked,
So aren’t you glad you looked?
You could go to China, Australia or even France,
Or even meet the Queen quite by chance.
You could become a spy and work for MI5,
You could see the first man come back alive.
But if that’s not enough for you,
Look what else you could do…
Get intrigued by some history that happened long ago,
Or some science experiments, and so
There must be a book out there for you,
Because who doesn’t love a good read, who?
