Where's MY Cupcake, Ms. Numeroff? Just Asking
Let's revisit a classic children's story. Thanks to my trusty minions, we now have a book trailer for If You Give a Cat a Cupcake, by Laura Numeroff (Felicia Bond, illustrator). Like all of the books in this series, the story is funny and filled with surprising twists and turns. The pictures are wonderfully colorful and cute. It is a fabulous readaloud, which grown-ups will enjoy as much as preschoolers. It is also an excellent book for early readers on their own.
I recommend all of Ms. Numeroff & Ms. Bond's children's books in the If You Give ... series. They are adventures, proving that getting there is much more fun than merely reaching a destination.
With Sprinkles, If You Please, and Thanks,

P.S. I've probably already used this song as a musical closer, but cupcakes reminded me of "Sugar and Spice" (1963), by The Searchers, appearing in this video clip from the (British) ITV television program Thank Your Lucky Stars (aired on December 21, 1963). The series was produced by Associated British Corporation (for my American readers, the "other" ABC) Weekend Television.
