I Love Reading Books


I read books, because they take me places
Inside when I look, I see so many faces
Detective stories, there are so many cases
Oh how I love reading books

When I'm at home, I read two or three books
My mom says, she thinks that I'm totally hooked
You would be too, if you would only look
Oh how I love reading books

My dad says, kevin why don't you slow down
There's plenty of books here, from the ceiling to the ground
You read them like candy, you gobble them by the pound
Oh how you love reading books

I find them fascinating, exciting, a tool
I learn about a lot of things that I don't learn in school
I'd rather read books than learn how to be cool
Oh how I love reading books

In these books I learn so many things
Look at the knowledge that these books can bring
I even read one book, and it taught me how to sing
Oh how I love reading books

So if someone says, that reading books is for girls
They don't understand that reading rocks my world
It lifts me, spends me, sends me in a twirl
Oh how I love reading books

If they don't see now, they will in due time
I'll let them read one of these great books of mine
And after they finish, they won't be so blind
Then they'll say, I love reading books

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
