    I Like to Help

    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!
