When Zachary Beaver Came to Town
Sarah, Age 11, New York, NY

Is a novel worth the time.
It made me think,
It made me sad,
Because I know
Zachary Beavers of my time.
It makes me wonder.
‘What it’s like
To live a life
Where you are stared at
All the time’.
Toby and Cal
Think their lives are so drab
And so hopeless
Without people
They have learned to love.
But they come to understand
Their lives could be a lot worse.
And so they helped
The boy who came to town.
By doing so
They helped themselves.

*This poem was written in response to reading When Zachary Beaver Came to Town by Kimberly Willis Holt
