    Mary Lights the Way!!

    A new twist on an old classic -- this wonderfully witty rhyming tale has my daughter '22 months' and husband giggling and singing every evening. Our neighbors dropped in with their two children 'ages 2 & 6' and immediately were hooked on Mary's wacky ways.

    Hail Mary!

    I have four children, ages two to ten, whose inclination to disagree on the relative merits of books is rivaled only by their collective hatred of unadulterated vegetables. But they all love 'Mary Had a Little Lamp' -- and so do I. For once, exhortations to 'Read it again!' leave me not aggrieved but delighted. Lechner's text binds unbridled goofiness to swinging iambic pentameter, and Staake's gorgeous illustrations are exuberant and hilarious. Mary is an imp for our age!

    So fun for the kids!

    Our two girls LOVE this book! We received it as a gift and they are entranced by the illustrations. We love to read it to them so much that we ordered three more this holiday to share with friends kids! We definately recommend this light-hearted silly book for all!!

    Here's a Book to Enjoy with Your Children or Grandchildren

    I read this book in the bookstore and enjoyed it so much that I bought it to have at my house when my grandchildren visit. My granddaughter is here for an overnight stay, and I read it to her for the first time. We both laughed together over this cute story. I immediately came on Barnes and Noble website to see if Jack Lechner had authored any other children's books. Sorry to see this is the only. Hopefully, there will be more to come.
