Read 'The Color GREEN' by Tenley Library’s kids

In March, spring came early to the Children’s Room at Tenley Library in the form of a book display about The Color Green. Kids checked out books with green covers, green titles, and green characters, such as Grandpa Green, The Green Ninja, and many more. They also placed paper flowers on a green poster and told us what the color green meant to them, which we turned into a poem. 
 
In honor of National Poetry Month, here is Tenley Library kids’ poem about the color green!
 
The Color GREEN
by Tenley Library’s kids
 
GREEN tastes like romaine lettuce.
GREEN smells like freshly mowed grass.
GREEN sounds like trees blowing in the wind.
GREEN looks like growth.
GREEN feels like a soothing splash of spring.
GREEN makes me feel LUCKY!
 
The kids also said they liked the color GREEN because:
 
“It makes me happy.”
“It reminds me of nature.”
“It’s pretty.”
”It is the color of frogs.”
“It is just like life.”
 
We can’t wait to see what they say about The Color Pink!
