All too often, though, my life can look exactly like that!
Just like our favorite characters--Hank the Cowdog, Harry Potter, Junie B. Jones,Â or Laura Ingalls Wilder--we haveÂ great storiesÂ to live out...and ours are real!TV Turn-Off Week starts on April 23th and finishes up on April 29th.Â Your mission:Â can you go a whole week without watching TV?Â Sure,Â television can beÂ great---but it is also great to take a break from it once in a while, just to remind yourself that there are lots of fabulous things to do, besidesÂ sitting in front of theÂ TV.Â So get busy and make your life worth reading! Now it's your turn to sound off!Â I'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas.Â Â Will you take the challenge?Â Â Why or why not?Â If you do, what willÂ you doÂ instead of watching TV?Â Just click on "Comments" under this post, and type away!
Okay, so I made that up. This weekÂ is actuallyÂ both National Library Week and Young People's Poetry Week. To celebrate, here's a poem about libraries!
