Description

This lively, fun-soaked collection of modern poems is arranged around the child's day. It is divided in six sections, which start with waking up, sweep through school, shopping, teatime, and playtime, and end with bedtime. Many of the 46 poems have been commissioned specifically for this anthology. Playful verses address such important events as bubble baths, birthday parties, finger painting, and somersaults. Humorous rhymes give answers to questions like "what's in the bath?" and the often-asked "what's in the dark?" A lot of the poems salivate about kids' favorite meals, from pancakes and scrambled eggs to chips and cakes. Dozens of full-page, full-color drawings bring the poems to children's imagination.
