Tie Your Socks and Clap Your Feet is a collection of mixed up poems. It has variety of different subjects such as new homes, babied, hats, purple orange, oceans, pets, time, etc. The illustrations in the book are unique.

It would be a fun book to have in a classroom library but would not necessarily be great for instruction.
