Read Across America

Read across America
We're so proud of our whole school
We're reading books across America
You know reading's really cool.
Every book unfolds a world
That'll take you far away.
Come join us young and old,
Boys and girls exercise your mind today.

Your imagination is something you should feed.
For growing inspiration let reading be your seed.

Read across America,
From sea to shining sea
Read across America
Will build a better you and me.

Read across America,
From sea to shining sea
Read across America
Will build a better you and me.
Will build a better you and me.

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.

The Cat in the Hat
