Runny Babbit: A Billy Sook

CRITICS HAVE SAID

  • "Children who have some fluency in reading will enjoy this bonsensical nook the most." – Karin Snelson, Amazon.com
  • "Children will love these clever poems and without prompting will probably create their own, unaware that they are focusing on a key reading skill: phonemic awareness. This is a treasure." – Lee Bock, School Library Journal
  • "Zany pen-and-ink drawings work in tandem with the poems to maximize the laughs." – Child Magazine
  • "Like the humor, the simple line drawings accompanying each poem are vintage Silverstein-so, gip, don’t sulp, and enjoy this unexpected lagniappe from one of the greats." – Kirkus Reviews
