Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Teachers often bemoan the loss of interest in nursery rhymes because they have traditionally been one of the earliest listening and learning experiences for children. They prepare youngsters for the notions of pattern and rhyme. They are often repetitive, which is both comforting and instructive. They are usually silly, adding an element of humor that makes reading fun. Now some of the favorite nursery rhymes and songs have become small board books with holes, each with a different illustrator. In this case, there is a hole around the farmer on every page. A new hole is added to show each new character in the song. On the left side of the page, the holes reveal small dancing bunnies and chicks. The illustrations are colorful and crowd onto each page without much attention to proportion, but they are fun and will appeal to the newest young book lovers. Part of the "Board Books with Holes" series. 2001, Child's Play, Ages 3 mo. to 3.
