So please, oh PLEASE, we beg, we pray,
Go throw your TV set away,
And in its place you can install,
A lovely bookshelf on the wall.

Okay, so maybe we don't actually need to throw the tv away... just turn it off once in awhile. :) Luckily, we haven't had much of a problem with that at our house. Most days my kids and I would rather sit down with a good book than turn on the tube.
