Poetry Friday: Snug, by Carol Thompson



Child's Play isn't as widely known here, but I love their contributions that make their way to the US from England. Snug is perfect for Poetry Friday. The format is large with stiff paper and ADORABLE illustrations from Carol Thompson. I love the free, sketched line-work, paper textures, and fluid color. Here's a snippet to enjoy today:

"As snug as a bug
in a very old rug,
Snug as a mole
in his underground hole.
Snug is a bulb deep under snow,
Snug is the earthworm curled up below."

Snug

Thanks for this, Lorie Ann. It looks precious, good for my 3 year old & just right for my 10 month old granddaughters! I think we could memorize that snug as a bug... really quickly.
