I Like to Help

Illustrations by Brad Teare

On Monday, Mommy washed the clothes.

I helped her fold the socks.

On Tuesday, Daddy dug a hole.

I helped him carry rocks!

Wednesday night I helped my sister

Put away the dishes.

On Thursday, brother had a chore.

I helped him feed his fishes!

Friday after school was out,

We raked up all the leaves.

On Saturday, Dad washed the car.

I helped him find his keys!

Sunday is the Sabbath day.

We rest from all our chores.

But I’ll be ready Monday,

So I can help some more!
