• Reader's Oath
    I promise to read
    Each day and each night.
    I know it’s the key
    To growing up right.

    I’ll read to myself,
    I’ll read to a crowd.
    It makes no difference
    If silent or loud.

    I’ll read at my desk,
    At home and at school,
    On my bean bag or bed,
    By the fire or pool.

    Each book that I read
    Puts smarts in my head,
    ‘Cause brains grow more thoughts
    The more they are fed.

    So I take this oath
    To make reading my way
    Of feeding my brain
    What it needs every day.
