Do You Carrot All for Me poem by Anonymous

Do you carrot all for me?
My heart beets for you,
With your turnip nose
And your radish face,
You are a peach.
If we cantaloupe,
Lettuce marry:
Weed make a swell pear.

From I Scream You Scream: A Feast of Food Rhymes

Selected as One of the New York Public Library’s 100 Best Children’s Books for Reading and Sharing

The exuberance of childhood often centers around food, so it’s no wonder that food rhymes endure from one generation to the next. Here, Lillian Morrison has gathered some of the wittiest and best-loved chants, street cries, and mock blessings for the enjoyment of young and old alike.

Nancy Dunaway’s pen-and-ink illustrations bounce with enthusiasm as children attend festive parties, visit Mexican villages, and journey to the moon. In Morrison and Dunaway’s jointly created universe, fruits flirt, dogs fish… and all the world is an apple pie. These stories are perfect for young foodies. Readers will learn the importance of caring and resourcefulness.
