Remember if you can, back to your childhood home
Sitting in a lap, learning how the dinosaurs roamed
Or how a world of wizards conjure spells
How dolphins dive. How giants yell.
Remember how these stories filled your days
Before you could talk. While you would play
Kids [reads] are the stories that we wish we had
as much for kids, as they are for moms and dads.
They’re for building the coolest bookshelves
The brightest young readers
For helping our sons and daughters
Turn into leaders.
For giving them the confidence
to have their own taste
To ask silly questions.
To set their own pace.
