I Want My Mummy!

Mummies are cool.  There have been lots of mummies found in Egypt.  In fact, there is an area of Egypt know as Valley of the Kings because scientists have found so many mummies there.  A super famous mummy is King Tut.  His mummy was discovered on November 4, 1922. 

King Tut was known as the boy king.

There once was a guy named Shel...

Who wrote kid's poetry well.
Most kids liked his books
Despite his scary looks
Cause he had cool stories to tell. 

HAHA!  Look I wrote a poem. 
This type of poem is called a limerick.

I bet you could write one too!
