Nice introduction to poetry for small children. I wish libraries (at least the ones I've used) had a better system for making 'non-fiction' more appealing - the only time we ever go down those rows is when writing a research paper and that's just not right.

‘These thirty-eight poems offer beginning readers a chance to try some verse. With drawings that pack a lot of action, a friendly book that will connect with everyday lives and lend a little music along the way.’ —BL.

When I grow up I plan to keep
Eleven cats and let them sleep
On any bedspread that they wish
And feed them people's tuna fish.
