Figure descriptions
An adolescent girl sits on a small bench beside a low table. She turns to the left side of the illustration to face an infant girl. The adolescent girl holds up one finger toward the infant girl, as if she is scolding her. The infant girl appears to cry; she holds one fist up to her eyes and holds the other first behind her back. At the right side of the illustration, beside the low table, a dog sits up on its hind legs and begs. The adolescent girl does not pay attention to the dog. She holds a spoon up next to a stack of dishes. The illustration title (which is also the poem title) is centered above the illustrated scene and is curved in a slight arch. The illustrated caption appears below the illustrated scene. Full page.
