The Pobbles like to read to each other. It helps them learn new words, and is a fun way to spend time together. Percy Pobble will often sit in a big comfy chair and read books out loud to his friends. When he was little, his favorite time of the day was when he would sit on his mother’s or father’s lap in the same big comfy chair and listen to them read his favorite stories.
His parents had a silly poem about reading and Percy still remembers the words.
Wiggly Giggly Story Time
It’s time to snuggle up and rest awhile,
To have silly dreams with a drowsy smile.
Sit on my lap and we’ll read some books,
The ones that cause you goofy looks.
Sleep takes longer when you are wiggling,
But I always have time to hear you giggling!
Percy loves that poem. It always reminds him of his parents. Having favorite stories and poems are memories you can take with you forever!
