We went to the library recently, and picked up a couple gems*
Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb by Al Perkins, Illustrated by Eric Gurney
A book about a Woodstock for beatnik monkeys.
(Purchase this book for your little hippy for just $8.99 at Barnes & Nobles. Or, if you really are a hippy, just get it out of your local library. Commie.)
Tomie’s Little Mother Goose by Tomie dePaola
The author/illustrator of Strega Nona presents a collection of nursery rhymes which starts off with the following gem:
Old Mother Goose,
When she wanted to wander,
Would ride through the air
On a very fine gander.
(Purchase this book of “rhymes” at Barnes and Nobles for just $7.99)
* Honestly, though, I really like these two books. Especially the monkey one. It is a fun read, and, well, it has monkeys. Millions and millions of monkeys.
