Keep On Reading
Teaching Children's Literature Awareness and Recognition
Jack Hartmann

This song is available on Jack Hartmann's Shake, Rattle n' Read.

If there’s a Cat in the Hat, and you know that
Wave one arm -- wave one arm
If the Gingerbread Man runs as fast as he can
Wave both arms -- wave both arms

If Brown Bear, Brown Bear sees colors everywhere
Swing your hips -- swing your hips
If Sam I Am had green eggs and ham
Shake your head -- shake your head

Keep it going -- never stop
Always give it all you’ve got!
Keep it going -- never stop
Keep on reading to the top

If three little kittens went to look for their mittens
Twist one leg -- twist one leg
If Chicken Little ran around and said the sky is falling down
Twist both legs -- twist both legs
If the third little pig made his house out of bricks
Dance down low -- dance up high
And if Cinderella is dressed in yellow
Sing with me -- sing with me

Repeat Chorus

Keep on reading -- never stop

Teaching Tips from Jack Hartmann:
    Sing along and add movements one-by-one until your whole body is moving. Start with one arm then another, then add movements.
    Follow-up with reading the stories to children to enhance literature appreciation.
