My Favorite Book


My favorite book is of outer space,
Of a trip in a ship to the moon.
My favorite book is a nursery rhyme,
Where a dish runs away with a spoon.
My favorite book’s an adventure tale,
With dinosaurs roaming the land.
My favorite book is of circus clowns
And a six-piece monkey band.
My favorite book’s a tale so wild
There’s a mouse as big as a tree.
My favorite book is whichever one
My dad is reading to me!
