Poems are bursting with life in this exuberant collection about growing up. Touching on subjects from getting teased to getting tickled, from playing in the garden to playing the piano, from old friends to hating new glasses, this compilation is hilarious and clever, yet gentle too. What began with Myles Pinkney's delightful photographs of children, has become, with the addition of Nikki Grimes's poems, a book to be treasured for its insight, humor, and harmony. No one is too young or too old to catch the laughing bug that runs through this brilliant collection.
