Our Reading Pledge


We promise to read

Each day and each night.

We know it’s the key to growing up right.

We’ll read to ourselves

We’ll read to a crowd.

It makes no difference if silent or loud.

We’ll read at our desks,

At home and at school,

On a bean bag or bed,

By the fire or pool.

Each book that we read

Puts smarts in our heads.

‘Cause brains grow more thoughts

The more they are fed.

So we take this oath

To make reading our way

Of feeding our brains

What they need every day.
