    If you’re sleepy in the jungle

    And you wish to find a pillow,

    Take a friendly word of warning:

    DO NOT USE AN ARMADILLO!

    Covering everything from centipedes to whales, from swinging on swings to ice-skating in winter, from eating applesauce to celebrating birthdays, the delightful poems in this extensive collection convey the experiences of childhood with a fresh timelessness.

    "Hoberman's rhythms are lively and agile, and her imagination and sense of humor are still in tune with young readers. Fraser's simple but detailed gouache and watercolor illustrations exhibit the same qualities . . . Good for beginning or experienced readers of poetry, this should indeed become a favorite."--School Library Journal

    "This collection of some forty years of Hoberman verse is a charmer."--The Horn Book
