Books by Helen H. Moore

If you read a few, then you’ll know it is true:

Books are good for you!

Chefs read cook books,

Pirates? “Hook” books!

Little kids read lift-and-look books!

We read books of poems and prose-

Some of these and some of those.

Read some too, and you’ll agree,

Books are good for you and me.
