Dear Mrs. Siskind, 

My favourite poem was "Dinosaur Dilemmas". I liked it because some of the questions asked are what I used to ask when I was a little girl. Thank you for letting my class and I read your poems!

Favorite Mimi Poems


Troy - Age 8

Dear Mrs. Siskind, 

I liked your "Dinosaur Dilemmas" best. It contained rythem [sic] which I like about it. It also contained a lot of rhymes. That was my favourite poem.... I think these poems are good for 8-11 year olds in my opinion...

I think it was interesting that an astronaut would eat cheerios in space.

...I think this poem would be good for 3-9 year olds.

Thank you for letting us borrow these poems and I hope they get published.

Good luck.

An Unlikely Visitor

This poem is really weird. The poem reminded me of a really gross snail. I think it's great the way it is. It's really great.

I like your ryming[sic] form. 

It reminds me of the Victorian era.

The poem reminds me of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, [but I think] animals should not eat candy. ~ Shauna
