Carrying Carrots

25 July 2011


A good way to carry your carrots when you pretend you’re a horse is put them inside your shirt. Probably you’ll need a belt or a piece of string around your middle so they don’t fall out when you gallop.

Ruth Krauss was born on July 25, 1901.

Have I said before that I want to be Ruth Krauss when I grow up?

    Your art takes my breath away. No need to aspire to be Ruth Krauss, though I’m a fan of her writing also.
    I know your Blue Chicken will leave other aspirants wanting to be Deborah Freedman, and green with envy.
