Author's Note: Thank you for reading my poetry collection. The process of this poetry collection is I wrote a few poems on notebook paper. Then I took my best poems and wrote them on blank paper and drew pictures that matched. Then I had a partner help me put the final draft papers on a blue paper, and we took pictures. Then I posted them on SimpleBooklet. I was born a few weeks in September in 2007 at Ames, Iowa. I grew up loving to play the piano, chess, violin, running, and in school I loved math and science. I am currently 9 years old and I made this poetry collection at Mrs. Dietz's fourth grade class at Fellows Elementary school in Ames, Iowa. Thanks to Simplebooklet, my fantastic teacher, and my helpful partners!
