Read this poem about how wonderful it can be once you open a book and begin!

Open A Book
     by Jane Baskwill

Open a book

And you will find

People and places of every kind;

Open a book

And you can be

Anything that you want to be;

Open a book

And you can share

Wondrous worlds you find in there;

Open a book

And I will too

You read to me

And I'll read to you.

Before you open a book, you need to choose the right one first!
