While everyone else is excited about presenting their treasures, one creative elementary schooler is stressed about her class's show-and-tell assignment. How is she supposed to share her collection if she doesn't collect anything? Polling her parents, visiting with Granny and Grandpa, and searching for the secret behind her siblings' obsession with baseball cards, she discovers she does, in fact, have something to share: a collection of stories and poems!

My Collection Conundrum
My teacher gave us homework that has me quite perplexed.
He asked us all to bring to class something we collect.
It seems that everyone BUT ME
knows just the thing to share.
"My jar of marbles."
"My favorite teddy bears."
I've emptied out my closet.
I've searched beneath my bed.
The random items I've unearthed don't share a common thread.
I hope my friends and family can give me some direction.
I'm trying not to panic—
but I need a good collection!
