The Book

Come on let’s take a trip

or even a journey, so many

things we can learn, flip

the page, let’s take turns, three

little piggies, a cat in a hat,

let’s read the Constitution

or the story of Secretariat.

From Mount Everest

to a speck of dust,

everything is in

a book you can trust.
