One of my favorite books as kid. (Why is this out of print?)

One of my favorite books as a kid; really made me want to visit New England. One of these days I have to buy myself a copy, but I really wish it was in print for new kids to enjoy.

Dilly, dilly, Picalilly...

I'll tell you something very silly... I still read these and my son is 10 years old! This book is silly, beautiful, fun, and sophisticated and deserves to be reprinted.

One of our children's all-time favorite books

Our three children all adored this book. They (at 32, 30, and 22) STILL have many verses committed to memory - as do I! Oh my goodness, oh my dear Sassafras and ginger beer Chocolate cake and apple punch I'm too full to eat my lunch! and Ride your red horse down Vinegar Lane Gallop, oh gallop, oh gallop again Thistles and foxholes and fences beware I've seventeen children, but none I can spare and Thomas Thomas Tinkertoes Upside down and away he goes He's off to call upon the queen In blue and crimson velveteenAnyway, I could go on and on with these playful and wonderful words - and the illustrations are incredibly winsome and witty! Kids love them, but the adult eye will understand their true delight!This is a great gift for a young child!

There is No Children's Book Finer!

A Few of my favorite childhood memories are the many times My Aunt read this fabulous children's book to me. I must have had her read it many times. She loves this book and we still quote it, and I still read my copy all the time, even though I am eighteen. Now My Aunt's Step-Son has a baby boy and My Aunt is desperate because she wants this same book for her Step-Grandson, but sadly, it is Out of Print. I suggest that anybody who wants to see a re-print edition, click on the link "e-mail a friend about this book," and then send a message to and in the space where you add a personal message, please indicate how much you want the book back in print.

The most wonderful book for a child!

My nephew Robert, loved this book as a child. His mother kept checking it out of the library for him. My kids now have a copy of it, which I still read aloud sometimes even though my youngest baby is now nine-and-a-half. I think I may have bought a few copies as gifts for babies last time it was in print. I'd buy another million today, as well as some copies for grandchildren someday. Please encourage the publisher to make more.
