Patricia Hubbell has been writing poetry since she was eleven years old. In 1998, her Wrapping Paper Romp was selected as a Parents Magazine Book of the Year. Patricia Hubbell lives with her husband, Harold Hornstein, in Easton, Connecticut, the small town where she was born. Remembering how much their children and grandchildren loved to bounce when they were very young prompted her to write Bouncing Time. "Bouncing is one of the joyous things little kids do," she says. "It reflects their constant enthusiasm."From School Library Journal:
PreS?Five Little Pumpkins repeats the well-known fingerplay. In Yaccarino's illustrations, garish orange jack-o'-lanterns with stark black eyes are accompanied by a blankly staring white ghost and a black cat. Although this short poem has been a perennial favorite of the storytime set, some children may find these faces frightening rather than appealing. In Wrapping Paper Romp, Plecas depicts a cheerful, round-faced toddler in orange pajamas tearing apart a colorfully wrapped present as a cat paws at a bow. Hubbell's rhyming couplets will hold youngsters' interest as they recognize the peek-a-boo game that the main character plays with the kitten behind the purple tissue paper. Skip the pumpkins and romp with the tamer of the two.?Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
