Ode' to Mo

The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog
or A Big Guy Took My Ball
We try to choose our favorite
when in truth we love them all

 Should I Share My Ice Cream? Or My New Friend is so Fun.
It doesn't matter which we choose
We love to read them all out loud,
Each and every one! 

With imaginations flourishing  
we study every page
seeking for a pigeon
that appeals to every age

With sparkling eyes we view a place
that some may not conceive
and we learn to solve life's problems
in your world of make believe. 

So for piggy and for elephant 
and all the other guys
the kids and I, we thank you, Mo,
You're a hero in our eyes. 


  1. I can tell you love to share you passion for reading with your students. Thank you for that!

  2. I love this and it makes me so sad at the same time because I spy with my little eye a beautiful library that I know for certain is filled with a beautiful soul. A library that I only get a glimpse of and a soul that I miss.

  3. YAY!!!! Such a cool poem for Mo :-) "We learn to solve life's problems in your world of make believe." Oh yes - the beauty of learning through a book. Thank you for this!!!
