“Young Penny has a song of her own and wants to sing it for all to hear, but the babies are sleeping. What is she to do? Why sing, of course! One is nice, two is nice, Three is even better. Four is nice, five is nice, Six in rain is wetter. Yet another reason to love Henkes!”
— Lorna Ruby, Wellesley Books, Wellesley, MA
