  First Page

  your everyday song,

  my favorite alarm clock—

  good morning to you!

  hey there, snow angel,

  we make perfect valentines—

  match made in heaven

  noodles so yummy,

  love letters for your tummy—

  warm alphabet soup

  your rainbow colors

  come out to play when it pours—

  chase the gray away

  love is in the air—

  every time our hearts meet up,

  i get butterflies

  what are the chances?

  maybe one in a million?

  what luck i found you!

  a wheely fun ride

  when your feet touch the pedals—

  BEEP! BEEP! bicycle

  you hug away tears,

  making boo-boos all better—

  best teddy ever

  taste buds are cheering

  for a squeeze of your sunshine—

  HOORAY, lemonade!

  purple popsicle,

  you’re the coolest summer treat—

  i love every drop

  little by little

  i love watching you grow up,

  each and every inch

  achy-heartbreak love,

  miss-you-so-much-it-hurts love.

  please hurry home, love

  it’s quite clear to me

  after hanging out with you—

  we’re friends at first sight

  you be my jelly,

  i’ll be your peanut butter—

  let’s stick together!

  wiggle-wag tail love,

  sloppy-smoochy-poochy love,

  true-furry-friend love!

  toasty together—

  happy-camper sandwiches,

  ooey-gooey s’mores

  while we are apart,

  stars wink a message to you—

  i (twinkle) love you

  from your button nose

  to your little piggy toes,

  i luv-a-dub you!

  shiny mister moon—

  your smile keeps me company

  when the lights go out

  snuggles and stories—

  best way to wrap up the day …

  a happy ending

  Betsy Snyder’s art and poems speak to the kid in all of us. She draws inspiration from her own childhood loves—a new box of crayons, a best teddy-bear friend, and even a grape Popsicle (still her favorite!).

  Betsy’s illustrations have won numerous awards, including recognition from the Please Touch Museum, the Society of Illustrators, and the Cooperative Children’s Book Center, which selected Haiku Baby as a CCBC Choices title. Sweet Dreams Lullaby was named a Bank Street Best Children’s Book of the Year. In addition to writing and illustrating children’s books, Betsy is a seasoned illustrator and designer of greeting cards. Betsy and her husband live in northeast Ohio.
