I Like Reading

I like reading dad’s old leaflets.

I like reading mum’s receipts.

I like reading things in secret.

I like reading in the street.

Sad or funny, fact or fiction,

brochures, comics, I don’t mind.

Atlases are my addiction.

Give me words and I’ll unwind.


I like reading cornflakes packets.

I like reading magazines.

Lust for words? I do not lack it.

I read magic in my dreams.


I like learning and exploring.

Reading is my rocket fuel.

Just don’t make me read those boring

books we study at our school.
