When you were born,
you were as big as a cabbage,
Your knee was as round as a radish,
Your ear as wee as a sweet pea.
You were as quiet as a mouse.
Through spring, summer, winter, and fall, baby grows and so do baby’s arms, and legs, and nose! In autumn, he’s as large as a pumpkin; in winter, he’s as full as a holly bush, and in spring, he’s as long as the lettuce patch. And someday, one day, he’ll be as big as mama. But it will take many seasons first!
Elaine Greenstein’s springtime palette celebrates the growing of a child in a setting abundant with nature. And parents don’t have to stop at the last line!
