Book Babies #50 PreciousWords challenge 2019

Everyone knows how much I love Vivian’s #50PreciousWords contest. It’s fabulous!!

dr-seuss

Here is a little background information for you all. March 2nd is the birthday of Theodor Geisel, better known to young readers as Dr Seuss, who was challenged by his publisher to write a story using only 50 words. Not so easy! Once again Vivian(www.viviankirkfield.com) is hosting her own 50 precious words challenge!

The goal is to write a story appropriate for kids ages 12 or under, using only 50 words…they can all be different words, or you can use some of them over and over…just as long as the total unique word count for the story is 50 or less. For more information pop over to Vivian’s website https://viviankirkfield.com/2019/03/02/the-50preciouswords-writing-contest-is-open/

My entry this year is for mama’s and their little ones. READING is SHARING is LOVE!

BOOK BABIES

by Julie Abery (41 words)

Book babies

balancing

on mama’s knee.

 

Book babies

touching

the colours they see.

 

Book babies

singing

a nursery rhyme.

 

Book babies

turning

one page at a time.

 

Book babies

finding

a corner to chew.

 

Book babies

lifting

a flap – peek-a-boo!

 

Book babies

laughing –

the world is so new.

 

Book babies

sharing

sweet moments with you.

  1. Ok, seriously… This is a winner! I absolutely LOVE this story. And the fact that it packs so much heart in only 50 words makes it that much more endearing. Well done.
