You're my little bundle bear.
Snap up, wrap up wooly wear.
We go here, there, everywhere
'Cause I love you!

"One punctuation mark, and one alone, refused to take the solemn Punctuation Mark Oath. And that was GREEDY APOSTROPHE!"

A perfect first book about
Valentine's Day:

One heart on the bathroom mirror
One heart in a shoe
One heart by my mommy's mug
To tell her "I love you!"

Frozen noses
Tingly toeses
Sniffle, Snuffle
Winter's cold!
Better bundle!
Quiver, shiver
Booted, buckled
Buttonholed

Hocus-pocus!
There's a crocus!
Plucky petals
Brave the chill
Frilly, silly
Daffodilly
Willy-nilly
Down the hill

Flutter, flitter
Gold as glitter
Colors crackle
Round the tree
Rake a heap up
Run and leap up
Fall is frisky --
So are we!

Take out your notebooks!

What is the nature of this beast?
Now he's hanging from the chandelier!

No children
No dogs
No food
NO FUN!

Even the moon was celebrating.
Inside the coffee shop,
