    Hi, my name is Paul Czekaj singer/song writer. My friend Becky Mason who was my Daughters elementary school librarian asked me if I could write a song in celebration of “Read Across America” to share with her students. I wrote an original song called “Reading’s Lot’s of Fun” that features many Dr. Seuss books I remember reading as a child. I’ve been performing the song at the school for the children for the past fifteen years! They really like it a lot. It’s a very upbeat bouncy song. It has been enjoyed so much that I recorded the song and added a fun video to go along with it. Here’s the link to watch it. http://youtu.be/qM3ZL9d_wKc You can also watch “Reading’s Lot’s of Fun” and all my videos by going to youtube and typing in my name Paul Czekaj. The words to the song are below. I hope you enjoy it and share it with any child who loves to read.

    Reading’s Lot’s of Fun

    Dr. Seuss Dr. Seuss, He makes reading lots of fun. Chorus.

    Dr. Seuss Dr. Seuss, I don’t know what story is my favorite one.

    One of the stories that I laugh at, Is the one with the boy and his 500 hats.

    Or that sticky stuff that was a pain in the neck, Poor old Bartholomew and the oobleck. Chorus

    A flower growing out of your head is crazy. But it happened in the story of daisy-Head Mayzie

    Horton told the mayor to make noise until. The kangaroos heard them, so he saved Who-ville. Chorus

    The tongue twisting rhymes by socks in fox, Could never be repeated by old Mr. Knox.

    Horton sat on a egg on tree that bent, Cause an elephant’s faithful, One hundred percent. Chorus

    Thidwick the big hearted moose is the best. Cause a host above all must be nice to his guests.

    For breakfast if you what green eggs and ham.Your gonna have to see a guy named Sam I Am. Chorus

    Don’t know which story eeee…eeeeee Is my fav fav fav fav fav fav favorite one
