    If you give a child a book
    He'll climb into your lap

    While he’s in your lap
    He might lay his head on your chest
    When he lays his head on your chest

    He’ll hear your heartbeat
    When he hears your heartbeat

    He’ll probably ask if you can hear his
    When you lean down to listen

    He might kiss your nose
    When he kisses your nose

    You could tickle his tummy
    When you tickle his tummy

    He might giggle and wiggle
    When he giggles and wiggles

    You’ll want to hug him tight
    When you hug him tight
    He'll smile like the sun

    When he smiles like the sun
    You'll smile right back
    When you smile right back
    He might tell you he loves you
    When
    he tells you he loves you
    You'll
    whisper it back
    Wh
    en you whisper it back
    He
    ’ll probably snuggle close
    W
    hen he snuggles close
    H
    e might ask you to read to him
    Wh
    en he asks you to read to him
    Y
    ou’ll read him the book
    Wh
    en you read him the book
    He
    might just learn to love…
    To
    learn!
