This book is bound
To pick you up.
To give a little lift.
If you take half
A change you’ll laugh.
We know you won’t be miffed.
So find a home
Inside a poem.
Take off your shoes and sit
And if you smile
Once in a while,
We won’t mind it one bit!
“Sure to draw fans of Shel Silverstein and Jack Prelutsky . . . [These poems] provoke laughter while playfully manipulating language to capture the comical essence of things and events in a child’s world.”—School of Library Journal
