Treat, Janet Wong

Wong, Janet. 1996. A suitcase of seaweed and other poems. New York: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing. ISBN: 0-689-80788-0.


This poem is about friendship.


It's my best friend's treat.

I won our bet.

I'd love the shrimp,

but I think I'll get

the pork instead--

it's half the price.

It's my best friend's treat,

but I'll treat her nice.


Have students draw pictures of their best friend and write about what they do to be nice to their friends.
