I can read

Look at me!


I can read!


And when I read I can be


an archaeologist exploring centuries past

a burglar stealing precious jewels

a cook concocting delicious meals

a detective solving a puzzling crime

an elephant tricking my friends

a footballer scoring the winning goal

a ghost floating down the stairs

a hobbit with a magic ring

an inventor making slimy goop

a juror sitting in the courtroom

a kookaburra laughing at the world

a lighthouse keeper looking for lunch

a magician making magic

a nomad wandering through the desert

an octopus guarding treasures of the deep

a pirate sailing the ocean blue

a queen sitting on her throne

a rabbit running very late

a sailor battling stormy seas

a traveller visiting far-off places

an umbrella carrying Mary Poppins

a vampire sucking someone’s blood

a wizard weaving wonder

an xtra in an adventure movie

a yacht racing the wind and waves

a zoologist discovering a new species


I am so lucky!


I can read!
