Today is a very special day!
Be sure to listen to what I will say.
Today is a day dedicated to reading books!
And not just any kind of things that you can read on Nooks
Dr. Suess books!
I seem to keep on using rhyming words
And everywhere there seems to be birds
The world around me is strange
I can only see in a limited range
Everyone has whiskers and fur
Can't tell whether it's a he or her
I seem to be stuck inside a place
And the exit leaves no trace
I must be stuck inside a book
A Dr. Suess book!
"Oh no, oh no!
I am stuck on the ground real low"
It was a story abandoned a while
No one reads it, but the book characters smile
"Pick me up! Pick me up!
Stop drinking coffee from a cup"
"Read me! Read me!
Only then can you save me
And I will smile with glee"
I guess my shouting did help
A small kid heard me yelp
My face was smaller than the tip of his shoe
He decided to open the book to page two
So he read, and read, and read
Words were coming out of the mouth on his head
After a while he found out
That he was in it and let out a shout
"What can I do to help you, small person? Give you a hand, take a stand? Call the police? Act like a geese? I promise to help you!"
So I told him to reach into the page
Inside I was no longer feeling rage
The boy was helping me get out!
I owed him, without a doubt
So I jumped out of the book and thanked him
I promised to gove a shout-out to him on my blog
Then a way I went!
Thank goodness that now I can stop rhyming! I am back in real life now.
Happy Read Across America Day, and remember to read books!
