What do YOU put in YOUR pocket?

Everyday things like a spinky spanky handkerchief? Or silly things like slushy gushy pudding?

No matter what you put in your pockets, you'll get a whole lot of ideas from Beatrice Schenk de Regnier's catchy, cumulative rhymes. Together with Michael Grejniec's zany, bright illustrations, they'll make you look at pockets -- and the days of the week -- in a whole new way!

Two groups of animals tell each other about the food and other things that they put in their pockets.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Beatrice Schenk de Regniers's What Did You Put in Your Pocket?, first published in 1958, receives a new look with Michael Grejniec's citrus-colored artwork, rendered in thick brushstrokes. Various animals ask a white kangaroo what it has put in its pocket each day of the week, in the cumulative rhyming text: on Wednesday, it's "slurpy glurpy ice cream," and on Friday, "sticky icky molasses." The frenetic illustrations and typography convey the increasing chaos in the marsupial's pouch. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Beatrice Schenk de Regniers wrote a number of classic books for very young children. She was blessed with impressive illustrators. Maurice Sendak did her What Can You Do with a Shoe?, and Beni Montresor the Caldecott-winning May I Bring a Friend? Now Michael Grejniec—by way of Tokyo—takes his turn at reinterpreting her pockets. Grejniec's finger-paint approach is messily appropriate for the stuff jammed into this particular cavity—slushy gushy pudding; nicy icy water; sticky, icky molasses . . . . Schenk de Regniers's repetitive lines, a style copied so often since, still have the power to fascinate little ones. This is a book for reading aloud. It is also a book that will make many a mom cringe in horror at what she might find in all her kids' pockets come laundry day. 2003 (orig. 1958), HarperCollins, Ages 3 to 6.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-As various animals dash through the week, they ask, "What did you put in your pocket/What did you put in your pocket/in your pockety pockety pocket?" The contents include chocolate pudding, "slushy glushy pudding/Early Monday morning," ice-cold water, "nicy icy water/Early Tuesday morning," a scoop of ice cream, "slurpy glurpy ice cream/Early Wednesday morning," and so on throughout the week. The story ends with the characters hovering in a hot-air balloon above a girl, asking, "What did you put in your pocket?" This cumulative tale is illustrated in a finger-painting technique that attempts to replicate a child's art style. The result is very busy, messy illustrations that overwhelm the already struggling text. The characters are only barely identifiable, and the background is so cluttered and textured that both the figures and words are easily lost in the chaos. The text itself, originally published in 1958 and newly illustrated, seems to have been randomly placed on the spreads with no thought given to natural flow or readability.-Heather E. Miller, Homewood Public Library, AL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Wildly bright colors and text that dances around the page give bountiful energy to this illustrated poem. "What did you put in your pocket early Monday morning?" asks the main narrative, as a small rabbit echoes "in your pockety pockety pocket" and a kangaroo runs in chasing a butterfly. The answer: "chocolate pudding." The font changes sizes, tips and curves, and other animals join in as the question is repeated for each day of the week. The kangaroo, always active, Rollerblades by, wearing sunglasses. Cheerfully showing its texture, paint covers every bit of alternating pages that list the pocketed objects cumulatively with qualifiers like "nicy icy water" and "funny finny fingers." These lists look finger-painted (the words "slushy glushy pudding" in brown, as if perhaps written in pudding) and contribute to the pictures' joyful feeling and resemblance to children's artwork. Bouncy-good for group read-alouds. (Picture book. 2-5)
