Open up a book, open up a book, Open up a book,
see what’s inside! Open up a book, open up a book,
Open up a book and see what’s inside!
Books with numbers,
books with words,
Books with pictures, too!
They make stories we can read.
There’s a whole world waiting for you!..
There’s a snowman, a unicorn, a big dinosaur,
A monster who says BOO! I’m not scared of what’s in there.
There’s a whole world wating for you! …
There are lots of characters that we meet
Like Clifford and Winnie-the-Pooh.
Curious George can’t be beat.
There’s a whole world waiting for you.
Every book is a surprise
Especially when it’s new.
It might be scary, it might be cool.
There’s a whole world waiting for you…
