Oh, I love to read,
How I do, yes I do!
And I’m sure many of you
Just love to read too!
Oh, The Places You’ll Go!
Through a book’s lovely pages.
I’d read all day
If I didn’t need wages!
The first books I owned featured horses and cats
Oh, how I enjoyed The Cat In the Hat!
Green Eggs and Ham, well that sounded gross.
My breakfast would be peanut butter on toast!
Thanks Dr. Seuss for writing such stories;
To you on this day we give the glories.
It’s Read Across America Day.
I’d read a book, if I had my way!
Happy birthday Dr. Seuss,
Happy Birthday to You!
You brought us the Grinch and Cindy Lou Who,
The Lorax, the Wocket — and Thing I and Thing II.
I learned to read from the books that you wrote,
But why did you never write about goats?
Oh, it’s OK. That’s just fine!
Billy Whiskers prevails on the bookcase of mine!
My taste in books, now they do vary,
My favorite is If You’re Not from the Prairie!
No murders or mysteries appeal to me,
I’m simply happy just reading Debbie.
Books entertain and inspire;
Make you dream or admire,
Play the villain, be the star.
Read a book, wherever you are!
Now go get a book,
An actual book or a Nook.
And sit down to read;
Take all day if you need!
Books make you think, hope and dream;
They make you laugh, cry or believe.
Oh, go get a book as I wrap up this rhyme
And sit and relax for a moment in time.
