What do YOU put in YOUR pocket?

Everyday things like a spinky spanky handkerchief? Or silly things like slushy gushy pudding?

No matter what you put in your pockets, you'll get a whole lot of ideas from Beatrice Schenk de Regnier's catchy, cumulative rhymes. Together with Michael Grejniec's zany, bright illustrations, they'll make you look at pockets -- and the days of the week -- in a whole new way!

About the Author:

Beatrice Schenk de Regniers wrote many well-loved children's books, such as What Can You Do With A Shoe? and the Caldecott-winning May I Bring a Friend? Ms. de Regniers was once a social worker, a dancer, and the founder of a children's book club, but her true passion was writing children's books. She died in 2000.



Michael Grejniec has illustrated many books, including The Animals and the Ark by Karla Kuskin. He keeps all kinds of things in his pockets: sometimes toothpicks. But he always has a pencil so that he can sketch the things that interest him. He was born in Poland and now lives in Tokyo, Japan.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-As various animals dash through the week, they ask, "What did you put in your pocket/What did you put in your pocket/in your pockety pockety pocket?" The contents include chocolate pudding, "slushy glushy pudding/Early Monday morning," ice-cold water, "nicy icy water/Early Tuesday morning," a scoop of ice cream, "slurpy glurpy ice cream/Early Wednesday morning," and so on throughout the week. The story ends with the characters hovering in a hot-air balloon above a girl, asking, "What did you put in your pocket?" This cumulative tale is illustrated in a finger-painting technique that attempts to replicate a child's art style. The result is very busy, messy illustrations that overwhelm the already struggling text. The characters are only barely identifiable, and the background is so cluttered and textured that both the figures and words are easily lost in the chaos. The text itself, originally published in 1958 and newly illustrated, seems to have been randomly placed on the spreads with no thought given to natural flow or readability.
