PreSAThis cheerful, clever poem about a woman obsessed with washing things of all kinds and hanging them out on her endless clothesline should elicit plenty of giggles from preschoolers. Mrs. McNosh begins with the conventional dresses, underwear, shirts, and so forth, but soon moves on to such items as the newspaper, the dog, the telephone, a Christmas wreath, grandpa's dentures, two bats, and finally herself, suspended in a lounge chair. A brisk meter, bouncy rhythm, and frequent repetition make the book perfect for reading aloud. Splashy double-page spreads of cartoons in bright colors show a vigorous, smiling washerwoman scrubbing everything in a barrel of bubbly water and clothespinning her strange laundry to the line. A storytime must.APatricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
