 The shine from the sun
lights up the day
the shine from the moon
lights up the night

Does the moon care
that it only shines
reflected light?
I don’t think so!

I shine with a twinkle in my eyes
when you are around.
I love it when
you light up my life!

I’m guessing the moon
feels the same towards the sun

      • Are you kidding me? I am a teacher by nature & profession. I primarily teach, Special Needs, Pre-K, and Kindergarten. However, I Tutor and work with students through 5th. I read it aloud I actually imagined. I build special lesson planning around each book. They know what an author, illustrator is…pull out letters, sounds…focus pictures… they have there own journals to express each day.! You have to make this a Childrens Book. Literacy is so important. I am a foundation builder for students. So Adults need help too!
