7 Books (A Children’s Literacy PSA Parody of Lukas Graham’s “7 Years”) #ReadMoreBeMore

Once I read seven whole books, my mama told
me, “You, need to play outside or you’ll be
lonely.” Once I read seven whole books. It was a rough rough choice, but I thought
I was smarter Pushing my scooter to the limits, I was kicking
harder by eleven getting close and breathing burning
fire Never fit, I wanted to drop dead, flat out
retire Once I read seven whole books, my daddy told
me, “Go, get some books checked out at the library.” Once I read seven whole books. I always had that dream of completing a series When I finished Harry Potter I needed more stories. Nothing that is too gory, just something mystic
and lore-y. The new desk clerk said that I’d love all
of the Mistborn stories Once I read seven more books, out by the old
brooks I finished all of them like it was a grand
prix Once, I ran right out of books I went back to the clerk, he said that he
would wager “that you’re, above your reading level,
all these books are major. Check out the Maze Runner, it’s about the
Gladers Let’s see if what Thomas does will make it
turn out he’s their savior.” Once I read five entire books, with barely
a look. I was reading most everything that you could
show me. Once I read hundreds of books. Soon I’ll read more than just books. The hands will be shook. I’ll attend a grad’ute school, and now I’m
hoping. Soon I’ll read little kid books. I’m so happy about how my kids can imagine
freely. Like when they look through all the house
in search of crazy myst’ries The Hardy Boys are with me, but they want
Sherlock Acad’my My daughter’s on the ground, she’s begging
for a Squirrel Girl story Soon they’ve read thirty more books, my oldest
wants thirty one. Remember Dune? Prelude to Dune becomes a better one. I made my girl so happy when I bought her
Cinder once, She always was into that fairy tale and sci-fi fun. Soon they’ll read dozens of books (in their)
little old nooks We’ll be reading together like a happy fam’ly
Soon we’ll read dozens of books. Soon we’ll read hundreds of books and they’ll
never be crooks And my, kids will make me father of the cent’ry
Soon we’ll read hundreds of books. Once I read seven whole books, my daddy urged
me, “Go, get some books checked out at the library.” Once I read seven whole books. Once I read seven whole books Children’s literacy is much more important than most people realize. 2/3 of student’s who cannot read proficiently by the end of 4th grade will end up in jail or on welfare. 85% of all juveniles who face trial are functionally illiterate. Proving that there is a close relationship between illiteracy and crime. Perhaps the most serious problem with current literacy programs is that they ignore and even divert attention from the real problem: lack of access to books for children of poverty Having books in the home is twice as important as the father’s education level. In middle income neighborhoods the ratio of books per child is 13:1. In low income neighborhoods the ratio is 1 age appropriate book for every 300 children. Future House Publishing is committed to delivering quality books to youth in need. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Access Books to help deliver new and exciting books into the hands of hungry readers.

  2. Any chance we can buy the single???  That would be another great way to raise funds!  I would SO buy it and I know I'm not the only one!

  3. My love of reading started at age 7 when a neighbor gave me a Nancy Drew book because I had chicken pox. I am so thankful for her!
