Haiku for tots. What a charming idea. So well-illustrated, too. A third book for my book store run planned on Saturday. There are so many good books out there it's hard to keep up!

Of course, there's still more absolute drivel that we should be ashamed to foist upon innocent ears...

Haiku for tots. Makes me smile.
