Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1"When I get up in the morning/I tumble out of bed,/I yawn and stretch and stretch and yawn/And scratch my sleepy head." Clive Webster's action rhyme is one of many in this anthology. Fourteen counting rhymes invite clapping, counting, and giggling. Fourteen finger rhymes are simple enough to perform without instructions, though scenes of playful children sprinkled on the pages demonstrate what to do with your fingers. Seventeen chanting rhymes will be welcome for shared reading. Along with an excerpt from "Spaghetti! Spaghetti!" by Jack Prelutsky and "I Don't Like Custard" by Michael Rosen, poems about balloons, popcorn, snowmen, bears, billy goats, and even squeezes provide a humorous assortment for children to say and read aloud together. The traditional Caribbean "Children, Children" will make a popular call-and-response chant. Like the finger rhymes, the 14 action rhymes are self-explanatory. Each page contains humorous scenes illustrated in bright watercolors over pen-and-ink. The chubby children, representing diverse backgrounds, reflect the verses' energetic tone. Some British spellings and terms might be unfamiliar to American readers. Still, the book will be welcome in collections that serve young children. A musical cassette is available for each section. Parents, care-givers, and teachers will find many of these verses, and their accompanying illustrations, inviting ways to encourage children to join in the reciting and the reading themselves.Joan Zaleski, Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY
