Story Time!

Nobody is like you.

My favorite color is green.

But perhaps yours is blue.

My favorite animal is the panda.

You might prefer a kangaroo.

I like to swim across the lake.

You might suggest a canoe.

I love to eat a slice of cake.

But you would rather a stew.

Don't you feel a stomach ache.

When you bite more than you can chew?

I might run away from snakes.

When you see one, you say "Yahoo"!

When I get home, I love to bathe.

You run away from the shampoo.

I love to draw with colored pencils.

You might select the glitter glue.

I think it's clear where I am going.

But we have time for a review.

Nobody is like me.

I love to drink a cup of coffee.

You might prefer a sip of tea.

I love to travel to the mountains.

You take vacations on the sea.

I might think that math is hard.

For you it's simple as 1-2-3.

I might drive and think it's boring.

You take a ride and say "whoopee".

I might like to stay at home.

But you would rather climb a tree.

For now one thing should be clear.

As I am sure you will agree.

It makes me smile from cheek to cheek.

That everybody is so unique.
