Susie Sawyer - Writing for Children

Say Goodnight to Illiteracy - "Ask Yourself a Question"

Grand Prize Winner, 2007 Half Price Books bedtime storybook contest.

I wrote "Ask Yourself a Question" because I believe it's important for children to not only ask questions, but search to find the answers.  While writing this poem and compiling questions,

I enjoyed allowing myself to wonder about things like a child.

                                        Excerpt:      Why do magnets stick together?
                                                             Where does outer space begin?
                                                             Do you really need a mirror
                                                             if your brother is your twin?
