Who Said Red?

One of my kids’ favorite books was Who Said Red? by Mary Serfozo. We read it so many times when they were younger that I have it memorized to this day. When the next generation of little guys started coming around, it was a must for our home library. Luckily I couldn’t let go of many of our favorite children’s books after my own kids grew up so we still had our original copy. It’s a cute story about a boy who is looking for something red and his sister keeps teasing him, asking if he said green or yellow or an assortment of colors. Long after my children stopped reading this book, at any given time when someone says red, we have been known to throw out a random line from this book.

When I saw the topic for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Red, that book was the first thing to come to mind.

The fog comes

“The fog comes on little cat feet.” -Carl Sandburg

I have always loved the poem by Carl Sandburg. It’s the first line that drew me to it. The first time I heard it was as a variation of that line in the title of the book- The Fog Comes on Little Pig Feet by Rosemary Wells. I read this book as a teenager and loved it. If you’re not familiar with the book, it’s about a thirteen year old girl who is sent to a boarding school against her wishes and manages to get into a lot of trouble. It was published in 1973 so it’s your garden variety 70’s kind of teen trouble. The title stuck with me and one year I incorporated the Sandburg poem into my NaNoWriMo novel. It was only natural that with prompt being “fog” that this book would come to mind!
