Reading Rap or Bible Rap
by Barry Mitchell
Here’s a rap I’ve used to encourage children to read books. It plays just as well for the Bible.
The Reading Rap also works well with our Willie the Worm finger puppet on our website at www.barrymitchellproducts.com
On the road there are many signs,
some pointing forward, some pointing behind.
Keeping track of all those directions,
helps us make better selections.
Going the same way all the time,
makes life boring and that’s a crime.
Open your mind to every way,
you can enjoy life and make it pay.
Reading the (use “the” referring to the Bible and “a” referring to other books) book is my favorite rule,
to keep your mind sharp and cool.
Follow the signs to your church (local) library,
books on every subject they carry.
Check out one and take a look,
once you start (pause) you’ll find it fun to read the book.
