Mrs. Martin and Ms. O’Toole wish you an amazing summer. Please keep reading and STEP INTO A STORY!



By Eloise Greenfield


I step into the story.

I leave my world behind.

I let the walls of story

Be the walls of my mind.


New faces and new voices.

I listen and I see,

And people I have never met

Mean everything to me.


I worry when they worry,

I quake when danger’s near,

I hold my breath and hope

That all their trouble disappear.


I don’t know what will happen,

I never know what I’ll find,

When I step into a story

And leave my world behind.
