No thanks, close this window
I wrote this song because I needed a song about reading for my motivational shows for kids. I use reversible song cards as props and a magic trick hidden in my pocket.
Encourages kids to feed their minds through reading rather than watching TV.
You've got to read. Crack a book!
You've got to feed. Take a look!
Your hungry mind. Find a nook!
So take some time. Read a book!
Oh Crack a book! You've got to read
Take a look! You've got to feed.
Find a nook! Your hungry mind
So read a book! Take some time.
So many choices in the library.
I'll find a book just right for me.
A tale of the sea about Moby Dick
Or a how-to book of magic tricks.
Teacher says I need a biography
For my report on Robert E. Lee
And I'll keep lookin?, ?cause when I?m done
I'll read about lizards, just for fun. (Lizard imitation routine)
I wanna keep readin' to feed my mind,
And load it up with good stuff all of the time.
Makin' my brain what it ought to be
I'd rather crack a book than watch TV.
Great song, I really like the lead vocals and also the good harmonies provided by the children, wonderful lyrics as well!
Sounds like Mrs. Kate Carpenter.... I love it. You rock girl...5 Star record even for adults ;-)
I always give big kudos to artists who create music for children. I like this one! It's fun, it's easy, it is well produced. The lyrics are good and the vocals in the mixing is done well. I'm going to go read a book now :)
Getting kids to read more is one thing, but singing about it, with some kids piping in, is about as good as it gets. Super enjoyable and the kids are sure to sing along with the first listen of this fun stuff. Bravo!
Wonderful! Cute and smart simultaneously, not easy to do. Great background vocals. And your vocal is great.
Jolly, with an important message. Sweet children's voices in chorus.
