Marvelous Toy by Tom Paxton

When I was a little girl my oldest brother used to play the guitar. One of his favorite guitar books was songs from Tom Paxton. My two favorite songs were "Goin' to the Zoo" and of course
"The Marvelous Toy"

"It went zip when it moved, & bop when it stopped
& Whirrrr when it stood still~
I never knew just what it was
and I guess I never will...."

I loved the "Whirrr" part because my brother could roll his "R's"......

This beautifully illustrated book brings back my happiest memories of childhood~it is warm and inviting. The fact that it comes with a cd is a plus because now all children can hear this wonderful music too!
