“When adults read a book, they're two feet away; when children read it, they're right inside it.”
Peggy Rathmann

“I had a cat I could not see,
Because it stayed in back of me.
It was a very loyal pet-
It's sad we never really met.

I had a nice pet
Who I never met,
Remember it always stayed behind me.
And I'm sure it was a cat, too.”
Peggy Rathmann, Ruby The Copycat
