A Little Bitty Man & Other Poems for the Very Young by Halfdan Rasmussen

What I thought: Amusing, sometimes downright silly poems paired with lovely illustrations. I adore the saturation of color. My favorite poems are "You Can Pat My Pet" and "The Strange Old Owl." My favorite illustrations are the cover and "The Strange Old Owl."
