This is a book Clover brought up for me to look at and it is adorable. Really, Clover has pretty good taste in kids books. Maybe because she is a children's librarian from way back, but who knows.
This cute little girl has a marvelous imagination, speaks poetically, has a penchant for naming things and thinks in bright blues, oranges, and reds. Quite an effective combination.
If I had a little house
I would name it Love.
Love would make me happy
and protect me like a glove.
Gardens feed my heart and soul, so I hear you sister!
If I had a little pond,
I would name it Wonder.
I love little wondering kids.
Birds bringing food is pretty adorable. I also like how she says a table would be a place to share delicious things to eat and puts one cupcake there and waits for lots of birds to bring her food. That is totally a kids idea of sharing. I will give this teensy thing and you give me lots.
Sleeping kids on a rainy day.... Oh my heart!
If I had a little brother
I would name him Sky.
Sky would be the air I breathe,
together we would fly.
Siblings are a pretty big deal. Brothers are alright I guess... Ha! They are pretty fabulous.
I have two lullabys to walk around with. And apparently I am lullaby for two more sisters. I am very rich in sisters, so my whole life is filled with song.
If I had a little dream,
I would name it You.
You would make life magical,
and make my dream come true.
