Library Crew Poem

Our Library Crew of fifth graders was asked to create a poem about libraries, books, and reading. Each student wrote just one line of the poem, and then all lines were combined. Here is the finished product. Enjoy!
Library Bash

The library is a place to find the book for you, from poetry, fiction, mystery and haiku.
You pick a book and then, you fall into a world of adventure and friends.
Books are red and books are blue, but you will find the left one just for you!
The books in the library have many different thoughts and feelings rushing out of them.
Books make you feel like you want to read anywhere, anytime.
Books are red, books are blue, books are perfect for you.
