There is no frigate like a book to take us lands away,
Nor any coursers like a page of prancing poetry.
This traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of toll;
How frugal is the chariot
That bares a human soul.
~ Emily Dickinson
When I was little and in elementary school, we had IRT, or: Independent Reading Time.
Trying to get them to come in and eat:
Happy Day to you, friends!
(and maybe some happy reading in there too)
