Teaser Tuesdays



Since I am still reading Franny and Zooey by J. D. Salinger, I will "tease" you with an excerpt from a book that my husband picked out for me.


Flippy, and Floppy, and Flappy are three
Dear little ducklings that sail on the sea.
Sail in a tin, and a boot, and a box--
What do they care for the sharks or the rocks?


This is from a gorgeous little book called The Little Big Book for Grandmothers.  It has stories, poems, recipes, activities, songs, etc. -- all manner of things to entertain a child.  The illustrations are really pretty and the whole book is reminiscent of books I had a child.  Thanks Hubs!
