Born with one brown and one blue eye, Taffy is a very different little girl who discovers how she can become other interesting things using rhymes she makes up and special words. As a door in her new neighbor's house, a weather vane up on her roof, a brown bulb growing under ground and an eagle flying high above, her imagination and curiosity wrap the reader in a cocoon of delight. Learning other words from the big dictionary fills her life with new understanding. Every child will want Taffy for a friend! This is a story for elementary and early middle school children to be shared with them by grown-ups who realize what rich excitement and breadth can be added to the lives of youngsters by expanding their thinking through imaginative rhymes and innovative words. Every new word learned is a significant gift which is theirs forever. Taffy's adventures developed through my replying to the request, "Tell me a story," and have been tested in library story hours and sessions in the shade of a backyard tree with groups of neighborhood little ones. Today's children have so much enrichment because of television and the internet that they are more than ready to develop vocabularies far beyond those of yesterday's young learners. To limit their opportunities to use and understand useful and descriptive words is not fair to them. Reading or listening to Taffy's adventures will fill this learning need for them.
