Synopses & Reviews
So much to see! So much to do! Open this book, and you can . . . smell the tall flowers in Aunt Giraffe′s garden, sip juice with a big blue goose, eat oodles of noodles with some poodles, chirp a cheery song with a little bluebird, fish in a frosty pond, and much, much more! With Jack Prelutsky′s twenty-eight hilarious poems and Petra Mathers′s brilliant, beautiful paintings, this classic collection for the youngest child is filled to the brim with smiles and silliness.
A gardening giraffe, a contented bluebird, and poodles eating oodles of noodles are just a few of the many characters in this collection of 28 poems from Jack Prelutsky, the nation's first Children's Poet Laureate.
