Mary Ann Hoberman was one of the names bandied about (by bloggers) for the recent Children's Poet Laureate title, but that went to Jack Prelutsky. Hoberman's first book for children, All My Shoes Come in Twos, was published almost fifty years ago, and her latest, I'm Going to Grandma's, sees print next spring, with many books in between. That's a remarkable career.
So, today I thought others might like to read some of Hoberman's work at her web site. I especially liked "To Make a Garden": "To make a garden, all you need/Is just a single simple seed." And speaking of gardens, I want to go live at Mary Ann Hoberman's house. Just look at her own gardens. Beautiful.
