Zora's current favorite Poem.  When we come across it in Read-Aloud Rhymes for the Very Young she wants me to read it over and over. And over.

Mud is very nice to feel
All squishy-squash between the toes!
I'd rather wade in wiggly mud
Than smell a yellow rose.

Nobody else but the rosebush knows
How nice mud feels
Between the toes

 ~Polly Chase Boyden

hmmm.....I wonder why this would be her favorite.

    Really? That's crazy, because Steve memorized that same poem in kindergarten and recited it for kindergarten graduation day. It must be a good poem! It has stood the test of time!!!

  2. I KNEW it sounded familiar. lol. She loves that poem.
