Life is comfy, you will find,
when you have your own behind.
Sitting down would NOT be cushy
if you didn’t have your tushy!
When you’re born your tushy’s there,
ready to go anywhere.
After crawling, you can nap,
your tushy fits on every lap.
Here's a celebration of this squeezably soft body part, with humor and warmth that readers of all ages will relate to.
Praise for THE TUSHY BOOK:
“There’s a whole lot of “tushy” here, but the creative uses and variations will keep the concept lively for young listeners, who will undoubtedly be drawn to the sparkly underpants on the cover.”—BCCB
Praise for Fran Manushkin:
“A delicious picture book . . .”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review of How Mama Brought in the Spring
“Manushkin tells this story in colorful language with high humor.”—School Library Journal, starred review of Shivers in the Fridge
“What makes Fran Manushkin’s simple tale work so well is its scope. To paraphrase Menashe the tailor from Latkes and Applesauce, every word of a story should fit as well as a glove. When it happens, it is more than a story. It’s a little bit of a miracle.”—James Howe, The New York Times Book Review of Latkes and Applesauce
