Why hello there. Hi. How are you? Hey!
It’s Read Across America Day.
In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birth,
Here’s a poem, for what it’s worth:
Reading, we know, is fundamental
And books, they can be transcendental.
Wizards and witches, dogs named Spot
Dystopian heroines, Camelot
Wimpy kids, lightning thieves, and Nancy Drew
Golden tickets and talking pigs, too
The stories we read can take us deep
into a world in which we weep -
or laugh or gasp in awe.
Ruminate, shudder, drop our jaw
But books do more than entertain -
Reading is exercise for the brain.
Reading is the base for all other learning;
when kids are behind, it’s very concerning.
If still learning to read by grade four,
in high school, they’re likely to walk out the door.
So pick up some books to read with your child
You could start with these that we compiled.
Fiction or non, classic or new
There’s a multitude of books to dive into.
Books that spark a future passion:
Music, science, history, fashion
Reading, we’re positive, without a doubt
Can help children figure anything out.
Reading to learn - now that is the key
for a life of achievement and prosperity.
