A brain friendly children's book. Isn't it better to be in a warm bed saying, "Isn't it better to be in a warm bed rather than out in the cold snow?
Arm in Arm celebrates the elemental reasoning behind love and acceptance. Jun 08, Sarah Sammis rated it it was amazing Shelves: read-as-a-child , favorites , pc , read-in , read-in This slim book of art and poetry was one of those books I would try to check out from the library every time I went. I'm surprised I didn't end up being given a copy. In fact, I ended up buying the library's copy many years later when it had been read to the point of falling apart!
I later released that copy via BookCrossing and replaced it with another one in better con If I were to make a list of the books I've read more times than I can count, Arm in Arm by Remy Charlip would be near the top. I later released that copy via BookCrossing and replaced it with another one in better condition.
Happily Arm in Arm has come back in print although the cover art has changed to a different collage of drawings from the book. I suspect that a number of people in my generation wanted a copy to share with their children. Then there are the silly jokes both written and drawn that pepper the pages. I really can't do justice to this book's charm and humor without scanning and publishing the entire thing online. So just go get yourself a copy to enjoy! Mar 18, Jenny rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorite-childhood-books.
This was one of my favoite books when I was 5 or 6. It's a collection of word rhymes and tongue teasers but oh so much more. I've thought of it quite often throughout my life and oh, how I wished I had a copy. When it's re-issued I'm buying a copy for me and my nieces!
Who was left? And so on. Child me would have given this five stars. It's a sub-genre all its own, but fans of concrete poetry, nonsense verse, tongue twisters, word play, meta- and interactive fiction will all find something to giggle over, something they want to share out loud with their families.
I am bothered by the lack of acknowledgements. Recommended if you can find it at your library before they cull it, but I'm n Child me would have given this five stars. Recommended if you can find it at your library before they cull it, but I'm not sure it's actually worth buying.
I good dose of the absurd and imaginative for budding minds enchanted by word- and line-play. I spent hours and hours and hours with this when I was about 5 years old. I got my younger son to spend some time with it yesterday, and he laughed a lot, and ran over to me with it to show me something several times.

Whimsical, delightful, fun-ful. My favorite: "I want a chocolate covered cherry and a chocolate covered Easter egg and a chocolate covered Valentine and a chocolate covered ice cream cone and a chocolate covered birthday cake and a chocolate covered Christmas tree and a chocolate covered snowman and a chocolate covered bicycle and some chocolate covered spaghetti.
Nov 09, Kathryn Bumbaugh rated it it was amazing. I read this book as a child and now, as a child at heart. Anyone who has a child or has been a child ; should enjoy this book. It is filled with lovely rhymes and illustrations, life lessons and thoughtful ideas. I can still quote much of it and copy the drawings; it fills my mind and memory to this day. Get this book for your child, grandchild, inner child. Feb 24, Carol rated it it was amazing Shelves: youth. This is a charming book from the late 60's that is a combination of witty observations and "cool" illustrations.
I have been totally entertained by this water color enhanced, illustrative, "punny" gift from a dear friend. It makes me laugh, it makes me think, and it makes me wish I knew Remy Charlip. Dec 27, Eric rated it it was amazing Shelves: childrens. What a beautiful, odd, surprising book. My wife introduced it to me back when she was working at Bookstop -- it was one of her childhood books that I'd never heard of.
As a kid I found this book hilarious and inspirational. Too bad it's out of print! Oct 18, Tracy added it Shelves: poetry , rereads , kiddo.
I do not know how to rate this. It's a trip. Jan 03, Emily Carlyn rated it really liked it. Clever, confusing, and creative. A game in a book. Mar 12, Eric Dowdle rated it it was amazing Shelves: childrens. Simply delightful. Oct 14, Friend of Pixie F. As two stars indicates, it was okay. Long out of print, this was reprinted just a month ago mid-September, and I looked forward to my library getting it in.

But L didn't care for the cartoonish style of it he seems to dislike when people or animals are represented in a distorted way and he didn't find the humor of it that engaging.
Perhaps when he's older. This book is not much more than a collection of doodles and strange musings, yet I couldn't get enough of it as a kid.
So there! Mar 01, Siskiyou-Suzy rated it really liked it Shelves: picture-books , fiction , surreal-bizarre-or-experimental. This little book is very unique and is clearly a treasure. I didn't have it in my childhood like so many of these reviews.
