miss elinor is smitten with words that are written

and illustrations bold and bright

she props up her feet and savors her treat

her heart soars, imagination takes flight


miss elinor enjoys books more than her toys

playthings where words abound

she turns each page, dexterity beyond her age

she is the smartest cookie around


miss elinor reads each sentence with ease

running fingers across each letter

she is filled with delight when the story ends right

to her, there is nothing better
