Why Not Me?
Lowell E. Boulden
Reviewed by Grace Schaefer (age 8) for Reader Views (5/09)
“Why Not Me?” is a book of poems – poems that give you choices of what you can be when you grow up, from ballerinas to doctors to astronauts. There are fifteen poems.
My favorite is the poem called “The Ballerina” (because I am a ballerina).
To be a ballerina
Is just what I desire
I’ll leap, twirl and twinkle
And set your souls on fire
It will take years of hard work
To fulfill my dream
But then one day in Europe
I’ll dance before the Queen
There are wonderful pictures to go with each poem in “Why Not Me?,” by Lowell E. Boulden. They look like speckles of color. The poems are quick to read.
