Song Description

Encourages kids to feed their minds through reading rather than watching TV.

Story Behind the Song

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.

Broadjam Member Reviews

Great song, I really like the lead vocals and also the good harmonies provided by the children, wonderful lyrics as well!

    - Randal Dunkle

Sounds like Mrs. Kate Carpenter.... I love it. You rock girl...5 Star record even for adults ;-)

Lyrics

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.
