‘Cowboy’ by Steve Turner ( for children of all ages :-) )

‘One day our teacher asked us

what we wanted to be

when we grew up.

So we said

electrician

schoolteacher

banker

doctor

lawyer.

Except for

David Smith

who said

cowboy.

We all laughed.

But secretly

I admired him

for telling the truth.’

(From ‘Dad, You’re Not Funny’)

Here’s another one: ( I love this book)

‘Why Are You Late For School?

I didn’t get up

because I was too tired

and I was too tired

because I went to bed late

and I went to bed late

because I had homework

and I had homework

because the teacher made me

and the teacher made me

because I wasn’t listening

and I wasn’t listening

because I was staring out of the window

and I was staring out of the window

because I saw a cloud.

I am late, sir,

because I saw a cloud.’
