Wrapping Paper Romp

Baby's got a present. A present in a box.It's time to do the wrapping paperWrapping paper romp.Here is a playful poem exploring the simple fun of opening a present. There's lots of colorful paper and ribbons to tear, rustle, and crumple as this toddler and kitten unwrap a gift. And as every baby knows--the packaging is even more fun than what's inside! Adorable and lively illustrations by Jennifer Plecas capture the simple joy and fun of this common experience.From School Library JournalPreS?Five Little Pumpkins repeats the well-known fingerplay. In Yaccarino's illustrations, garish orange jack-o'-lanterns with stark black eyes are accompanied by a blankly staring white ghost and a black cat. Although this short poem has been a perennial favorite of the storytime set, some children may find these faces frightening rather than appealing. In Wrapping Paper Romp, Plecas depicts a cheerful, round-faced toddler in orange pajamas tearing apart a colorfully wrapped present as a cat paws at a bow. Hubbell's rhyming couplets will hold youngsters' interest as they recognize the peek-a-boo game that the main character plays with the kitten behind the purple tissue paper. Skip the pumpkins and romp with the tamer of the two.?Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VACopyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc.About the AuthorPatricia Hubbell has been writing poetry since she was eleven years old.
