I was looking for this book, too. Children dressed up as police, fire, teacher, carpenter... and marched to school saying hay foot, straw foot (left,right) to keep in step. Right? Who is the author? What is the title?
It was a rainy day. David and Tony were going to school." Hay-foot! Straw foot!" said Daivid. "That means."Left! Right!Left!Right!" are the opening lines to a Wonder book titled The Make Believe Parade. It is illustrated by Eloise Wilkin. The story is by Jan Margo. I have an extra copy for sale for 20.00 plus shipping if you are interested. Click on contact on the left of the screen.
