Mommy, won’t you pretend with me?
We could dress up and drink some tea.
See, I’m figuring out who I want to be
When you play make believe with me.
Daddy, won’t you build with me?
Blocks, trains, a Lego city,
Math and physics I can see,
When you create new worlds with me.
Grandma, won’t you cook with me?
We could make lunch or cookies for three.
Measuring, pouring, I’m learning, yippee!
Having fun, you, me and Teddy.
Grandpa, won’t you read with me?
Those words and pictures I can see.
They come to life so easily,
When you make them real for me.
Brother, won’t you run with me?
Superheroes, a pack of dogs maybe.
We’re learning language easily,
When we imagine what we could be.
Sister, won’t you dig with me?
Here in the sandbox or away by the sea.
There are no limits on you and me,
We can get loud and super messy.
School Friend, won’t you swing with me?
Play some tag or climb a tree?
We’re taking turns and leading fairly,
When we’re running wild and free.
Teacher won’t you play with me?
Because ABC and 123
Just don’t mean that much to me.
To learn I need to hear, taste, touch, smell and see!
