FOUND POEM: we can be smile to death


Did you know that youtube videos now can provide a transcribed text?  I've just checked on the trailer for The Henry Books and what a strange little found poem it is.

Great post! Loved the video . . . and the poem! Mom bought "When You Were Small" for Madeline when you're book first came out. I need to pick up the other two (even though she's now 13 years old). I just can't have a book set that is not complete.

Heading to Saskatoon this weekend. Mom and dad are moving into a townhouse and I'm going to help them pack things up. I'm hoping I might catch up with your mom if she's around.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Becky :D

You have a great weekend too & give your folks my love!
Can't believe you have a 13-year-old - you're still not much older than that in my mind!
