on the tree top,
you know the rest--
that baby goes plop.
Did people really
stick babies in trees?
This song is a nightmare!
Next lullaby, please.
I had a book of funny poems similar to those in Maybe I'll Sleep in the Bathtub Tonight, as a child, and I absolutely loved them. I nearly read that book to death and it's easy to visualize this book being read to tattered shreds, although it has a beautiful hard cover and should last a good long time. Great for reading at bedtime or for older children to read on their own, the rhymes are cute and silly, the illustrations bright and cheerful.
Poems: 5/5 - Cute, humorous rhymes that children and adults will love to giggle over together and older children will enjoy reading on their own.
Illustrations: 5/5 - Gorgeous, slightly retro-looking illustrations, bright and colorful and just a little bit silly.
This is book #4 for Children's Day. Believe it or not, there is still more to come!
