Seeking peace and rest, the good-hearted Harriet embarks on her journey to the seashore, carrying Joey in her comfy, specious pouch.

Poor good-natured Harriet cannot say no until. . . . Written in rhyming verses and lively conversations, Harriet Can Carry It is a uniquely playful story that is sure to delight young readers.
