Bennett Cerf's Pop-Up Limericks

Bennett Cerf's Pop-Up Limericks was published in 1967 and this 52 year old book is in great condition. Every so often, I come across a treasure at the thrift store. I only paid 55 cents for this book.

The limericks in this book are cute and the pop-ups all work.

"A mouse in her room woke Miss Dowd.
She was frightened, it must be allowed.
Then a happy thought hit her:
To scare off the critter,
She climbed down from her chair and meowed."

 "There was a young lady of Crete
Who was so incredibly neat,
that when rising from bed
she stood on her head
To make sure of not soiling her feet." 

This book is out of print, but it's so cute.

Angela Jensen is a consistent supporter of our book project. I'm excited for the babies to get these books. Giggle, Giggle, Quack is such a fun book. Thanks, Angela.                                   

Read to a child today even if that child is you. 

Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.
