The Peppernuts are a quirky family of six who settle happily in Paradise Valley. They live in an abandoned hunting lodge with a stream for water and bathing and nature all around to enjoy and explore.

From the book flap:

"In this book two great artists have told the stories of these men from Washington to Eisenhower, - intimate biographies with many pictures to give readers a glimpse of their personalities and their backgrounds.

Many of the rhymes in this book are familiar or traditional. I appreciate these kinds of poems because it shows poems from long ago. It also has songs or jingles that are also traditional. Students can use these poems to create a new version or a different version of the poems.
