I WANT TO GO

TO SCHOOL TOO

By Josie Whitehead

I Want to Go to School, Too

It isn’t fair!’ my brother cried.

      ‘I  want to go to school!

I’m fed up now with nursery school

     And to make me go is cruel!’

 

‘My brother’s gone and why can’t I?’

      Oh, how he did complain!

He said this once, he said this twice

      And said it once again.

 

He cried, he kicked and looked quite sad.

       ‘I’m NOT a baby now!’

We tried to think how we could help –

      But help him?  Tell me how.

 

‘I want to go to school today!’

       Shh - a knock upon the door.

His friend arrived and off they went

     To nursery school, for sure.

 

Next year they’ll both go to our school.

      It won’t be long to wait

And on that day, he and his friend

     Will chase through our school gate.
