BOOKS FOR EVERYONE!
Sister reads to brother, then he’s on the go.
The stop is coming up, sister’s in the know.
Big sister looks and looks. Where can brother be?
What is brother up to? What does sister see?
[brother singing Itsy Bitsy Spider]
Mom and Dad rush dinner. Baby sleeps away.
Bundle up, head on out. They must not delay.
Up the block, down the street, baby looks around.
What's baby looking at? What is on the ground?
[baby: “Woof! Woof!”]
Granny's done with dishes. There’s no time to waste.
Brother grabs the book bag. “Let’s pick up the pace.”
Cross the street, through the park. Up the stairs they climb.
Why so fast? What’s the rush? Will they be on time?
[Brother: “We made it!”]
“Vamanous!” “Time to go!” Now they’ve got to fly.
Nana stays at home now. Baby waves bye-bye.
Helmet on, buckle in, then she starts to pout.
Now screams of excitement! What makes baby shout?
[bird flying overhead]
Sean runs in the back door. Box of books in tow.
Opens doors. Greets the crowd. Everyone shouts: “Whoa!”
Time to listen. Time to sing. Eat and have some fun.
Did he bring enough books? ONE for everyone?
[tables filled with books]
Now time to look and find a book. Look and look some more.
Pick one up, look again. Just like in a store.
Sister likes mysteries. Brother studies trees.
Which one’s right for baby? Which one’s right for me?
[everyone leaving with books]
