Pots and Pans

Written by Anne Rockwell

Simon & Schuster (1993)

Two toddlers find lots of entrancing things in a kitchen cupboard, including a shiny tea kettle, wok, wooden spoons, and rolling pin. In the end the children, wearing a strainer and a colander on their heads, are shown banging and beating on the pots and pans.
