Family Celebrity Poems: “You are the best…”

What if our family members were celebrities? This week we wrote poems about a member of our family and celebrated all of the things we love and admire about them. Maybe it’s their cooking, their dancing, or the way they teach us stuff. Enjoy this week’s poets!
