(Bruce Lansky will visit Bucknell on April 13, 2013 as part of the Stadler Center Children's Series)
My mother says it's childish and
my father says it's dumb-
whenever they discover that
I'm sucking on my thumb.
It's such a silly thing to do,
as everybody knows.
So now instead of sucking it
I stick it in my nose.
A jaunty rhythm and rhyme underscore the playfulness of this children's poem by Bruce Lansky, an appropriate piece for Lewisburg's "Kidsburg" playground.
Bruce Lansky is well known for getting children excited about poetry. Several of his children's poetry collections, such as If Kids Ruled the School, have become bestsellers. Lansky lives in Minnesota.
