And To Think That We Thought We Would Never Be
Illustrated by Kevin Hawkes.
In a rhyming verse that is a deliberate tribute to Dr. Seuss,
this rollicking tale tells how making friends rather than fighting
can lead to a better world. What begins as a minor sibling squabble
results in an escalating resolution that culminates with the whole
world uniting in friendship. Noisy neighbors and squabbling townsfolk,
dogs and cats, lions and tigers, and eventually even predator sharks
settle their differences and join the parade!
Look inside the book!
"A jaunty rhyme and imaginative art combine in a book that
also comes complete with a useful message."
"This bouncy title will make a wonderful read-aloud, especially
as a responsive poem with children echoing the chorus. It would
also be great for creative dramatics, with youngsters joining a
parade complete with whistles, spoons, and drums."
School Library Journal
"I believe that [this] children's book
has earned the
award for the longest-titled picture book of 1999; it has earned
my vote for the best one as well."
