Children's Poet Laureate

Not Enough Beds for the Babies

Little, Brown & Co., 1965.

Illustrated by Helen Spyer.

This is a playing-house book. And everyone knows that when playing house, the first thing you do is decide who is the father and who is the mother. After that come the visits to neighbors, the household chores, the walks and talks with friends, the grocery trips and the doctor's appointments. And finally the putting the babies to bed. In this timeless collection there is a straight-out-of-childhood poem for each of these activities and many more.

Look inside the book!
