Out! Out!
Into the world
on wheels!

What will you see?
Who will you meet?
What will you smell
from way down there?
What will you find?
Things that are:
soft, wet, furry, sweet.
How will you feel?
Fast. Slow. Small. Big.

Come out, out
into the world
on wheels . . .
until it's time to
come home again.

For example, Carpenter offers a close-up of adult faces, with the toddler's hand reaching up ("Sometimes/ [people] lean over/ say Cute!/ I want to pinch/ their noses") and on another page, gives readers a view of the toddler as she apprehensively watches a dog with a "meanie mouth."
