This is Thesaurus,
A good, not-scary dinosaur.
He knows many ways to say many words…
But he always likes to start with “Hello!”
and maybe “How do you do?”
Right now, he's waving a big howdy-do — to you!
Thesaurus knows how to say hello other ways, too - like hola, bonjour, and ni hao - whether he's in the park, sitting pretty
Or exploring the big city.
But today, Thesaurus needs your help.
He's looking for some words he lost.
They're usually on the tip of his tongue.
But they escaped while he flossed!
Have you seen them?
He’s looking for a phrase people (and dinosaurs) use when they care —
When someone misses a friend, because he or she's not there.
Do you know the words?
It's something you show when you do something kind
Like sharing a toy
Or returning something you find
Have you seen the words?
The words are like a hug
Something your mom or dad whispers when you're snuggled like a bug
Have you felt the words?
It's the feeling you get when someone takes the time
To tuck you in —
Reading this book
From beginning to end.
Have you figured it out?
By now, you should have no doubt.
Cozy up to the special someone beside you
And let them know…
I LOVE YOU!
