Another of the books I brought to my students was Cherish Today: A Celebration of Life's Moments by Kristina Evans. This quiet poetic book takes us on a journey through a child's growth as a learner, as a person. I'm not usually a fan of rhyme, but Ms. Evans does a lovely job of wordsmithing this text.
"You've accomplished your goals
And you're well on your way.
The future's tomorrow--
I love that this book is not about the end of the road, but about embracing the journey and trials along the way. There's a warm sense of gratitude, caring, and sincerity that floats through the book's pages. My favorite line: ls "Let's be honest; there may be some days when your life will resemble an underground maze."
I think I may put this book in our "Endurance" basket. I'll have to ask my students if it fits. It may go on my graduation gift list as well. It's a quaint piece of poetry.
