Big buggy blue, blue buggy blue,
Be-bop-a, blue-bop-a, buggy-bop-a boo.
That's the song Henry and his mom sing as they go around town. From the time his mom gets the beat-up old baby buggy at a yard sale, it is Henry's favorite way to go everywhere-and, as he grows, for a multitude of activities in his urban neighborhood. But there comes a time when Henry would rather walk himself or ride his trike or scooter. And like all outgrown baby things, old blue buggy sits unused. It's hard to part with, but Henry and his mom take it out to the sidewalk for trash pickup, then softly sing their blue buggy song one last time. Children will find comfort in seeing how it remains a part of their lives.
Carol Thompson's illustrations-buoyant and bouncing with energy-perfectly complement the vivacious text about a rite of growing up.
