The first sign of success is a hunger to achieve
With a burning desire to be better than you were yesterday
The second sign of success is hard work and dedication
Committing yourself to reach your goals no matter what
The third sign of success is resilience
Showing grit and determination in the face of setbacks and failure
The fourth sign of success is self-awareness
Acknowledging your strengths and weaknesses and working to improve them
The fifth sign of success is balance
Finding a way to succeed without sacrificing your health or relationships
The sixth sign of success is support from others
Getting help and encouragement from those who believe in you
The seventh sign of success is personal growth
Continuously learning and expanding your knowledge and wisdom.

Certain Signs

There are certain signs that success is near,
you can feel it in the air,
you can see it in the way people look at you,
and you can definitely smell it.

The first sign is a feeling of excitement,
a certainty that things are going to change for the better.
followed by a sense of calm,
knowing that all the work you’ve been doing is about to pay off.

Then there’s the increased energy,
the desire to get up and do something,
to make your dreams a reality.
After that comes the recognition,
when people start to take notice of what you’re doing.

Signs of Success All Around Us

The signs of success are all around us
The evidence is clear, it’s hard to miss
Achievement is written in the air
And we can feel it in the way that we’re blessed
There’s a confidence in our steps
A belief that no matter what comes our way
We’ll be able to overcome
Because success is something we’ve earned
It’s not a gift, it’s not a curse
But the result of our own efforts
hard work and determination
So never give up and never give in
Keep your eye on the prize
And you’ll achieve anything you desire.

Looking back

The signs of success are all around us,
But we often don’t see them until we’re looking back.
There’s the successful businessperson,
Who has an empire that they’ve built from scratch.
There’s the athlete, who’s achieved the pinnacle of their sport,
And the artist, whose work is recognized and praised.
Then there are those who have simply found happiness and contentment,
Living a good life without any type of acclaim.
Success can come in many different forms,
But it’s always something to be proud of.

I know it when I see it

I don’t know what success looks like
But I know it when I see it
A smile that’s wider than before
Eyes that light up with glee
A heart that’s singing with joy
These are the signs I look for
The proof that all your hard work was worth it
The markers on the road to victory
So don’t give up, keep on fighting
And you’ll find success is in sight.

A Baby’s Smile

The signs of success are all around us
We just have to open our eyes and look
There’s evidence of it in the smallest things
Like a baby’s smile or a sunset’s glow

It’s in the way we feel when we’re at our best
In the accomplishments that we’ve achieved
It’s all around us, if we just take the time
To open our hearts and see.

A Burning Desire

There are countless signs of success,
But the one that matters most is a burning desire
To be better than you were yesterday.
If you have that fire inside, nothing can stop you.
You will blaze a trail to the top and never look back.

Hard Work and Dedication

It’s not the luck of the draw,
nor is it beginners luck.
It’s all about working hard,
and being dedicated.

You’ll never get ahead,
if you don’t try your best.
So always give it your all,
and you will be successful.

There will be times of struggle,
but that only means you’re trying.
Keep going through the tough times,
and you’ll reach the top.

Committed to Reaching your Goals

Don’t be fooled by appearances
Success is not always what it seems
Though it may be hard to see
There are signs that you’re succeeding
And here are a few:

You’re taking action and making progress
Even when things are tough
You persist through the setbacks
You have faith in yourself
You can see the finish line
And you’re always working towards it.

Resilience, grit and determination

Look at them all,
so proud and accomplished.
What makes them so different?

It’s not just a talent or a gift,
but resilience, grit, and determination.
They never gave up, no matter how hard it was,
and that’s what made them successful.

Team Effort

Look all around,
What do you see?
A team that’s unified,
working together for success.

There’s a sense of purpose,
and a feeling of pride.
This team is on a mission,
and they’re not going to let anything stop them.

There are no individual stars,
just a common goal,
and a willingness to do whatever it takes
to achieve it.

So don’t be fooled by appearances,
this team is successful,
because they’re willing to work hard and put their differences aside.

We are a Team!

Look at us, we’re a team
Working together towards one common goal
And nothing can keep us from succeeding
Not even the obstacles in our way

We’re united by our passion and our drive
And we’ll never give up or back down
We’re determined to reach the top
And see all our dreams come true

There are signs of success all around us
In the way we work together as one
And we will continue to climb ever higher
Until we reach the pinnacle of achievement.

Your Family is there for You!

In order to achieve success,
one must be willing to work hard
and put in the time and effort.
But it’s not just up to one person-
success takes a team.
Your family is always there for you,
supporting you through thick and thin.
They are your biggest fans,
and will be the first ones to congratulate you
when you reach your goals.
Their love and support is what keeps you going,
and their encouragement gives you strength.
Thank you, family, for being my biggest sign of success.

Be The Tortoise, not the Hare (Poems about the Hare and The Tortoise)

Be the Tortoise, Not the Hare

Be the tortoise, not the hare
In life, slow and steady wins the race
Don't be fooled by the fast and flashy
The one who endures will reach the end
Think long term, not short term
The gains you make will be worth your while

The Tortoise is Slow and Steady

The tortoise is slow and steady 
While the hare is quick and jumpy 
The tortoise is a symbol of endurance 
While the hare is a symbol of haste 

The tortoise plods along at its own pace 
While the hare races ahead without thinking 
The tortoise will reach its destination 
While the hare may never make it there.

Not the Flashiest

Slow and steady wins the race
The tortoise knows this better than most
He's been around for years, through thick and thin
He's not the flashiest, but he'll get there in the end
Others may be faster, but they won't last long
The tortoise is patient and consistent – he's a survivor
When the race is over, he'll still be going strong.

When You Rush You’ll Only Tire

Slow and steady wins the race
Be the tortoise, not the hare
When you rush you'll only tire
The prize will be yours for the taking
If you just take your time 
You'll be surprised what you can achieve.

The Tortoise Is The One Who Wins

Slow and steady, the tortoise is the one who wins
The race against the hare, the fastest of all creatures
Though often underestimated, the tortoise is a force to be reckoned with
When it comes to perseverance and determination
In the end, the tortoise always prevails.

The Survivor

slow and steady
he keeps on moving
never giving up
he’s a survivor
through the good and bad
the tortoise is patient and consistent

The Courage To Start

You'll be surprised what you can achieve,
When you put your mind to it and try,
You can do anything that you believe,
So don't be afraid to try.
The sky's the limit when it comes to what you can do,
Just look inside yourself and find that power,
There's nothing that you can't do or conquer,
If you just have the courage to start.

The One Who Endures Will Reach The End

In life we all endure
A journey that is never ending
With hardships and heartache
But the one who endures will reach the end
Their trials have made them stronger
And they have found their courage
In the end, they will be rewarded
For their faith and perseverance.

In The End, The Tortoise Always Prevails

In the end, the tortoise always prevails
He's been around for centuries and he knows how to survive
He's slow and steady, never giving up or backing down
On his back is a hard shell that protects him from harm
He's the symbol of perseverance and determination
When the chips are down, the tortoise is always there
This humble creature is an inspiration to us all
He reminds us that slow and steady wins the race.

Definition for a Growth Mindset (And Growth Mindset Poems for Kids)

What Is a Good Definition for a Growth Mindset?

This Poem gives a good definition of a growth mindset.

A Growth Mindset

A growth mindset is believing that you can grow and improve your abilities.
With a growth mindset, you focus on effort and learning, not intelligence or talent.
You see the struggle as a necessary part of the process of learning and becoming smarter.
People with a growth mindset welcome challenges because they know that overcoming them will make them smarter.

Let’s unpack that with an example:

Growing up, if you wanted to be like your friends or the people in TV and movies, you had to have a “fixed mindset”. That is, you believed that you were just born with certain abilities and that there was nothing you could do to change or improve them. If you had a “growth mindset”, on the other hand, you believed that with hard work and dedication anything was possible. You saw yourself as a student learning and growing every day. This difference in mindset can have huge implications for your success in life.

Kids with a growth mindset believe that their ability to learn and grow is natural and inevitable. This mindset encourages them to keep working hard, even when they don’t see immediate results, because they know that the process of learning is always beneficial.

These poems below are perfect ways to encourage your kids to have a growth mindset, and also give you some ideas for your own growth-minded poems.

There are also some poems that are for you.

Bringing with it hope of a new day

A joy to behold in the fresh young springtime

Symbol of rebirth and new beginnings.

your fragrance is so sweet.

The Sight of Daffodils

I love the sight of daffodils

Yellow and orange against the green

They remind me of the Springtime

When all things are new once again

I can’t wait to see them in my garden

Landing like sunny butterflies

Bringing hope that Winter is ending

And Summer is on its way.

The fragrance in the air

Is such a delight

Cheerful Display

So early in the year.


You Make Everything Seem Just a Little Brighter

Is there anything as cheerful as a field of daffodils,

Niagara of yellow spilling out all over the place?

Marching in step with the sun, they bring such happiness,

Like a smile from Heaven, a sign that Spring is here.

Daffodils, you make everything seem just a little brighter,

Even on the grimmest of days, your sunny presence is felt.

Nature’s Message That Spring is Here

Daffodils blooming by the side of the road

Cheerful yellow faces in the April breeze

Their happy fragrance a joy to behold

March slowly giving way to April’s hope

Nature’s message that spring is here

Budding trees, burgeoning flowers

All sing of new beginnings.

Emerging from the Soil

Daffodils emerging from the soil

Cheerful yellow petals in the sun

Fresh and new, they stand out in the field

A sign of spring, a signal to be happy

Their fragrance fills the air

Bringing joy to all who smell them

Long may they stay, to bring happiness

These symbols of rebirth.

Each Spring You Grace Us With Your Presence

Daffodils, you are so lovely

Each Spring you grace us with your presence

Your golden trumpets always announce

The arrival of a new season

We can’t help but smile when we see you

Especially when your petals are wet

From a recent spring shower

Your beauty is unsurpassed by any other flower.

Daffodils Awaken In The Morning

They open up their petals to the world

Sharing their beauty with everyone they see

And remind us that spring is on its way.

Everyone Loves a Daffodil

Daffodils, daffodils

Bringing happiness wherever they go

Their smile is as bright as the sun

Yellow and orange, their petals so bright

They make everyone smile with just their sight

These flowers bring nothing but joy

Even when the days are filled with sorrow

Everyone loves a daffodil.

Daffodil Bulbs Are Poisonous

Daffodil bulbs are poisonous,

Causing a stomach upset if eaten.

So don’t chew on them, or eat them,

Or you’ll be feeling quite sick.

Do Daffodils Grow Back Every Year

Yes, daffodils grow back every year.

You can mark their return

By the fresh green spears

That poke through the melting snow.

Their cheerful yellow blooms

Let you know that spring is here,

Bringing new life to the earth.

How Long Do Daffodils Last?

The daffodils last for weeks,

Bringing color to the lawn;

Catching the eye as they sway

In the early morning sun.

Each day they are a little different,

With new buds just starting to show;

Soon they will be at their peak,

An explosion of yellow and white.

But even when they start to fade,

They remain a cheerful sight;

And we can’t help but smile

At the sight of daffodils in bloom.

Golden Daffodils

Golden daffodils so bright and gay,

Smiling in the morning sun.

They bring a touch of springtime to our day,

A sign that winter’s done.

The world is new again with their arrival,

A fresh start for each and every one.

We can’t help but smile when we see them swaying,

In the breeze, so proudly on display.

A Hardy Perennial

Daffodils are a hardy perennial

That will come back again and again

They are always cheerful and bright

And add a touch of color to any scene.

Bright Yellow Trumpets


bright yellow trumpets

speaking of spring

and rebirth

bidding us to come and see

what new life has sprung.

Don’t Eat Daffodil Bulbs

Don’t eat daffodil bulbs,

they’ll make you sick,

I learned the hard way,

now I’m warning you.

You’ll get a tummy ache,

and feel like you’re going to die,

just don’t eat the bulbs,

and you’ll be fine.

Other ways to say “said” (Poems for KS2)

I Chanted

I chanted and the wind carried my voice

I chanted and the stars shone in the sky

I chanted and the trees whispered in the forest

I chanted and the moon smiled down on me

I chanted and Nature heard my plea

Now I am One with the Universe.

He Asked

He asked if I was happy

and if my life was good

I told him of my struggles

and how I sometimes felt misunderstood

He listened closely and intently

and then he grabbed my hand

And with a smile he said

“I’m glad you’re here, with me.”

They Boasted

They boasted of their conquests,

Of the battles they had won,

But I could see the fear in their eyes,

Hiding behind their facade.

They would boast about their strength,

And how they were never scared,

But I could see the uncertainty,

In the way they would glance around.

The Teacher Explained

The teacher explained the lesson

But no one seemed to be paying attention

She tried to engage us in discussion

But we were all too busy chatting

The teacher kept on speaking

Though we weren’t really listening

She showed us examples and diagrams

Which we didn’t even bother to look at

Finally, the bell rang

We put our books away

And silently filed out of the room

Thanking the teacher for her time.

The Parent Mumbled

The parent mumbled,

As they rocked their child to sleep,

The worries of the day

Fading away with the night.

They murmured a prayer

For their child’s safety and well-being,

And for blessings to be showered

On them both for the coming days.

The parent smiled,

Staring at their precious child,

Thanking God for giving them

This moment of peace.

The Footballer Shouted

The footballer shouted

As he kicked the ball

It flew across the field

And hit the net

The crowd went wild

He was the hero of the day.

The Girl Chuckled

The girl chuckled,

Clearly amused by something I said.

I asked her what was so funny,

But all she would tell me was “nothing”.

The Clown Called

The clown called, in a voice that was sad and tired.

He said he was tired of being laughed at, tired of the make-up and the games.

He said he just wanted to be himself, but no one would let him.

They only wanted to see him smile and dress up like a fool.

But the clown said he was tired of their jokes and their mockery.

Tired of pretending to be someone he wasn’t.

Maybe one day, they’ll let him be himself.

But for now, he’ll keep playing his part.

The Man Whispered

The man whispered,

And the world whispered back,

We all have a story to tell,

Some are louder than others,

But each one is worth telling,

For it makes us who we are.

The Thief Lied

The thief lied when he said

he only wanted to take a little

his greed got the best of him

and he took more than he needed

now he’s paying the price

his conscience is eating him alive

he wishes he could go back in time

and undo what he’s done.

The Friends Giggled

The friends giggled.

It was such a delight,

To share in one another’s company.

We laughed and joked,

And had a blast,

Just being with each other.

There’s nothing quite like,

The feeling of joy,

That comes from being with pals.

The Witch Cackled

The witch cackled and the children screamed.

It was a sound that sent shivers down your spine.

Her laugh was harsh and cold,

Like the winter wind that blows through your town.

She was a wicked woman,

And everyone knew it.

What Can I Say To Brighten Your Day? (Poems)

What Can I Say To Brighten Your Day?

What can I say to brighten your day? 

I don’t know what it is, but you’re not looking happy. 

Maybe I can offer some words to make you feel better. 

I’ll do my best to make you smile, even for a little while. 

Just tell me what it is that’s wrong, so I can try and make it right.

I hope that I can bring a bit of joy into your life,
and make your day just a tiny bit brighter.

I’ll Do My Best

I don’t know what to say

To make your day go right

But I’ll do my best

To help make it bright

Maybe a joke or a smile

Or just a kind word to say

That will help you carry on

When things are feeling rough.

They’re Special

What can I say to brighten someone’s day?

I could tell them that they’re special in every way,

And that I hope their day is filled with happiness

And all the things they hold dear and close to their heart.

I could also say that I hope their dreams come true,

And that they find all the love they’re longing for,

And that all their hopes and wishes are realised,

In this new day that’s just begun.

It Goes a Long Way

What can I say to brighten someone’s day?

This one is simple: just a smile!

It costs nothing, but it goes such a long way,

To help someone feel better when they’re feeling down.

A kind word or gesture, it’s so easy to do,

Just takes a moment of your time-

So why not take a moment today,

And put a smile on someone’s face?

Plenty of Things to Say

There are plenty of things to say

To make someone’s day

A kind word or a smile,

Can go a long way.

It doesn’t take much,

Just a token of care,

To make someone feel loved,

And show that you’re there.

I hope it will Make Your Day

I don’t know what to say

But I hope it will make your day

A smile, a hug, or a kind word

Anything to let you know you’re heard

It won’t take much, I know that for sure

Just a little something from me to you

To let you know that you’re not alone

In this big world, we all need someone to hold.

Let Me Try

What can I say to brighten someone’s day?

I don’t know, but let me try.

Your smile is so beautiful, it could light up the dark.

You’re so kind and caring, you put everyone before you.

You’re amazing and strong, no matter what life throws your way.

I hope this brings a smile to your face, and makes your day a little brighter.

A Kind Word

There are so many things

you can say to make someone smile

A kind word, a compliment,

or just a simple hello.

It doesn’t take much

to bring a little light

into someone’s day.

So if you see someone feeling down,

try to find the words to pick them up.

A kind gesture goes a long way,

and it’s sure to make that person feel better.

When Someone is Feeling Down

When someone is feeling down,
sometimes the simplest things can turn their frown upside down.
A kind word, a warm hug, or even just a smile can help them feel better.
So if you see someone who’s feeling sad,
try to think of something that will make them glad.

Turn Their Word Around

A simple smile or kind word
Can go a long way
To make someone’s day
When they’re feeling down
Just a little love
Can turn their whole day around

Just A Simple Smile

Just a simple smile,
Can go a long way.
A kind word,
Can make someone’s day.
Maybe it won’t solve all their problems,
But it will remind them that they’re not alone.
And sometimes that’s all it takes,
For someone to keep going.

Show You Care

What can I say to brighten someone’s day?
An act of kindness, a word of love,
A prayer for peace, or a smile from above.

A kind gesture, a listening ear,
A helping hand, or just being there.

Whatever words of comfort you have to share,
Just take a moment and show that you care.

And we’re so lucky to have him.

We know that we can always count on him.

Thank you, Dad, for being the best one,

And for always being there for us.

Peace Poems for Kids

Peace Poems For Kids

Here are some peace poems for kids to discuss with/inspire your children.

Peace – What Does It Mean?

Peace is a word that is often used,

But what does it really mean?

It’s something that we all wish for,

But it’s not always that easy to find.

Peace is calm and quiet,

A feeling of happiness and contentment.

It’s the absence of fear and violence,

And living in harmony with one another.

We all want peace in our lives,

But it’s not always easy to achieve.

It starts with each and every one of us,

By making choices that lead to peace.

We Must Work For Peace

We must work for peace

Day by day,

In our own little way,

Until it spreads around

And never ends.

Dove Symbol of Peace

A World Without War

We all want peace

It’s what our hearts desire

A world without war

Is something we all aspire

No more bombings

No more killings

This is the world we seek

And our dream is to make it a reality.

Peace – Such a Special Thing

Peace is the feeling we get

When we’re all together

And our hearts are united

We can all feel the love that surrounds us

And it’s such a special thing

Just to know that we’re all one family

And we’ll always be there for each other

That’s what peace is to me.

Peaceful Thoughts

Peaceful thoughts and a clear conscience,

Living life with no regrets and always taking the high road,

Focusing on the good in life and being content with what you have,

Smiling at others, being friendly and kind,

Helping those in need without expecting anything in return,

Praying for peace both for yourself and for the world.

More Than the Absence of War

Peace is more than just an absence of war.

It’s listening to each other, even when we disagree.

It’s working together to find solutions and build a better world.

Peace is when we can all live in harmony,

Respecting each other’s cultures and beliefs.

It’s when we put our differences aside,

And come together as one human family.

Peace is the Absence of Fear

Peace is the absence of fear

And the presence of love

When we have peace in our hearts

We can be free from all that troubles us

And we can live in harmony and unity

With each other and with nature

May we all find peace within ourselves

And may it ripple out to encompass the world.

Living without Anger

Peace is living without anger

And being calm and kind

It’s working together

For the common good

It’s knowing we are all connected

And that every act has a consequence

So let’s work for peace

Every single day

So that we can all be happy

And our world can be a better place.

A World At Peace

A world at peace is what we all seek

To have a life with no fear or hurt

This can be achieved if we all work together

With love and kindness filling up our hearts

Let’s focus on the good and not the bad

So that we can create a world that’s pure and bright

And let this be the legacy we leave behind

For our children and for all who come after.

We All Want Peace

We all want peace

It’s what we hope for

A world without fear

And without wars.

This is something we all can work for

Helping one another out

So that everyone can be at peace.

Peace is a state of mind

And it starts with each of us

Working to make the world a better place

For everyone.

Peaceful People

Peace Is The Absence of War

Peace is the absence of war

And all of the terrible things that go with it

It’s the ability to get along

With people who are different from you

It’s the hope for a better tomorrow

For everyone, everywhere

Peace is something we all need

So let’s work together to make it happen.

Peace is a Feeling Inside

Peace is a feeling inside

That comes when everything is right

It’s like a cool breeze on a hot day

Or a calm ocean after a storm

Peace is what we all crave

And it starts with each of us

We must be kind and do no harm

Respect one another, that is the key

And in time, peace will grow

For our world and for us all

It’s something to aim for and fight for

So let’s start making a change today.

Listen to our Hearts

Peace is a special thing

It’s something we all need

When there’s too much anger and hate

It’s what sets us free.

Peace is something we can find

Inside of our hearts

If we just take the time

And listen to what it has to say.

Peace is The Absence of Noise

Peace is the absence of noise

And the calm after a stormy sea

A time to relax and breathe

A state of mind that’s free.

It’s being in the moment

And not worrying about the past.

It’s the smile on a baby’s face

And the light in somebody’s eyes.

Peace is a song that fills the air

When everything is going wrong

It’s a hand that reaches out to help

In times of trouble and despair.

May peace be with you every day

In everything that you do

May it bring you happiness and calm

And keep you safe and sound.

There is Nothing More Important

There is nothing more important

Than peace here on Earth

We must all work together

To build a world of unity

So that our children can be safe

And live in happiness and love.

Stop War

May The World Be At Peace

May the world be at peace

And all wars come to an end

We all need to live in harmony

In order for this world to mend

Our differences we must set aside

And work together for a common goal

So that our children will not have to fight

For a world that’s free of hate and strife.

We Will Be Much Happier

Peace is a good thing

It’s what we all need

In this world of hate and anger

Let’s all try to be more peaceful

And get along with one another

We’ll be much happier that way.

The Stillness after a Storm

Peace is the absence of war

In the world, in our hearts

It’s the stillness after a storm

The calm before the next one

It’s an ideal we all long for

And something we must never take for granted.

Like a Ray of Light

May the world be at peace

And all wars come to an end

We all need to live in harmony

In order for this world to mend.

Our differences we must set aside

And work together for a common goal

So that our children will not have to fight

For a world that’s free of hate and strife.

A Boy Named Charlie

A boy named Charlie,
Won a ticket to the factory.
Inside he found a world of chocolate,
Filled with surprises around every corner.
He met the Oompa Loompas,
Who sang and danced as they worked.
Charlie had a great time,
And ate more candy than he ever thought possible.

Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator


Rising high into the sky
A glass elevator that’s smooth and bright
Charlie and his mom inside
Going up to visit dad on a work trip
The view from the top is astounding
A world of endless blue and white
The sun shining down on everything below
Reflecting off the glass so it shimmers and glows

Charlie and the great glass elevator go up and up,
Riding smoothly on a gossamer thread.

They ascend so high that the air grows cold,
And Charlie’s heart is filled with joy.

The world spreads out before them like a map,
A tapestry of greens and blues and browns.

They whiz through the sky, faster and faster,
Until they reach the sun.

James and the Giant Peach


A peach as big as a house
Caught James’ eye as he walked by
He climbed up to investigate
The peach was ripe and juicy
Suddenly, James heard a voice
” Who’s there?” The peach asked
James was scared but responded
“It’s James, I’m just looking”
The peach said “Okay, come on up”
So James climbed up to the top
Inside, he found a doorway
Leading to a room full of gold
And a colossal peach seed.

James and the Giant Peach

When James was just a lad,
his parents died in a car crash.
Left alone, he was forced to live with his mean aunts.
But then one day, something amazing happened.
A giant peach started to grow in the garden!
Inside the peach, James found new friends
To help him on his fantastic journey.
The peach sailed across the ocean blue
With James and his friends inside,
Until they finally landed on a shore
In America, the land of opportunity.

A Girl Named Matilda

There was a girl named Matilda
She was exceedingly bright
And though her parents were quite average
Matilda shone like a light

Matilda loved to read books
Which helped her learn and grow
She had an incredible mind
And her teachers knew it, so

The headmistress didn’t like Matilda
She thought she was too smart
But the other kids loved her

And so did Miss Honey

A Little Girl

Matilda is a little girl
Who is very smart and sweet
She has a magical power
To make things happen with her mind
She is always willing to help
And she never gives up

A Girl With a Gift

Matilda is a girl with a gift,
she has a special power to make things happen.
She can make things happen with her mind,
and she doesn’t have to use any force.
Matilda is a girl who is smart and kind,
she uses her power to do good in this world.
She helps people who are in need,
and she makes them feel happy and loved.

The BFG!

I dreamed that I met The BFG,
He was larger than life
He kindly took me by the hand
And showed me around his land
He introduced me to all his friends
And we had a jolly good time
Then before I knew it, it was time
To say goodbye to The BFG

But I’ll never forget the joy
That he brought to my life.

One Of Roald Dahl’s Most Underrated Books

The BFG is one of Roald Dahl’s most underrated books.
It tells the story of a big, friendly giant who
steals children from their beds at night to eat them.

The other giants consider him a weirdo and make fun of him,
but he doesn’t mind because he has a good heart.

One night, he takes Sophie to his cave and tells her his story.
She is so fascinated that she doesn’t even realize she’s about to be eaten.

When she comes home the next morning, she tells her parents what happened and they don’t believe her.
But eventually, they come to believe her and the book has a happy ending.

Well-drawn Characters

Of all the Roald Dahl books I’ve read,
my favourite one by far is The BFG.
The story is so imaginative and fun,
it’s one I could read again and again.
The characters are so likeable and well-drawn,
and I love the way the story ends.
I highly recommend it to anyone,
whether they’re young or old.
