You stir and squoosh them, squish and moosh them.
Mingle, blend and mix!

Mix anything together and who knows what you'll get. You may create something wonderfully different! Water and flour make a sticky paste perfect for arts and crafts. And what can be better than mixing sugar, milk and butter to produce yummy fudge?

With simple words and vivid illustrations, this series of 13 fun and bouncy poems illustrates the concept of combining things. Mixing blue and yellow paint to make green is probably familiar to most children, but who thinks of music as being the result of mixing the sounds of instruments? Or a sports team as the combination of many players with different strengths?

Young children will love listening to these funny poems while learning about a simple, but important, concept.

"Just one more glass of water, / and one more time to pee, / and one more check beneath the bed / for monsters—wait for me."
