You can stay inside your room- Yet travel far away. Just read a book and you’ll be hooked And with me you can say: I love to read a story! I love to hear a poem! I’ve gone a thousand million miles And never left my home. I may watch the television- And go outside to play. But reading is the best of all Let’s read a book today! Some children like computers- And there’s nothing wrong with that. But me, I like the smell of books, Whether skinny, thick or fat. It’s true I’ll often sniff them- When I think no one can see. Computers are made of plastic, But books are more like trees. Life isn’t always easy- At times it can be tragic. But read a book and you’ll be hooked- Books are gosh darn magic.
