(So that your youngster will fall forever in love with reading)
You howl and growl
and laugh and scowl
and wiggle and twist
and change your voice
You make faces
and go to places
with imagination in the highest key.
You rhyme and sing
and soar like a bird on new wings.
You smile and play coy
and treat that book like a treasured toy.
However you read, read with joy
so those young listeners will think, “Oh, boy!
Books are my new friend.
Pleeeeease, please, please, please
read to me again!”
