by Naomi Shihab  Nye
Illustrated by Nancy Carpenter

Published by Greenwillow Books / HarperCollins, 2003
32 pages
ISBN: 0-688-1594806

Ages 18 months - 4 years

A lively picture book captures all the sights and sounds experienced by a toddler out for an autumn stroller ride. The energetic narrative is firmly grounded in the present moment, creating a marvelous stream-of-consciousness catalog of the young child's observations and feelings: "Giant trees / dropping leaves / in my lap / Spin them around / make them fly!...A tissue from shopping bag Mama shouts / Not yours! / It's mine / It's mine! Everything's mine!" Nye's vivid and engaging prose is illustrated by Nancy Carpenter's watercolor and pen-and-ink artwork. CCBC Categories: Picture Books for Babies, Toddlers and Preschoolers.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
