When You Can Read

Rating: 4.0

When you can read, then you can go
from Kalamazoo to Idaho -
Or read directions that explain
just how to build a model plane -
Or bake a cake or cook a stew -
The words will tell you what to do!
When you can read, then you can play
a brand new game the proper way -
Or get a letter from a friend
and read it . . . to the very end!
