Gasp! What, no "The Poky Little Puppy"? Where's a paper bag I can breathe into? (Seriously, great list.)

Wow, "Make a World". I'd totally forgotten that one. A great book! Brings back memories of recess and spelling tests. And afternoon naps. Remember those? Sigh.

Paula, I actually went out and bought "Make a World" a couple of weeks ago just for nostalgias's sake. I had such of rush of memories looking through it. 'The Poky Little Puppy' did make the list. It is further down under "answers given by one person only."
