To Warren, who inspired the original "Poopy Log"; to Zachary, who gave me enough reasons to revise it; and to Kenny, who allowed me the time to perfect it.

To my husband, Danny, who takes credit, and rightfully so, for all the good ideas.

To my Mom and Dad, "and they dream that someday maybe each will grow an apple tree."

To Andrea, my friend since kindergarten, who helped the book grow up.

To Lam Quach, whose images captured what I could only express in words.

And finally, to all the parents whose letters and suggestions made the book even better...

Thank you.
