Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Nursery rhymes still have appeal, even though their original meaning has been lost over time. The alliteration, soothing words and cadence may account for their continued appeal. In this collection, there are the familiar—"Old Mother Hubbard," "Three Little Kittens" and "Pop! Goes the Weasel." Although one might wonder what the real meaning of the latter is, and even Wikipedia does not have a concrete answer. Would any young toddler today have a clue as to what pease porridge is and why a feather would be called macaroni? Does it matter? Perhaps to some, but most lap sitters will just enjoy being read to and even smile when they learn what little boys and girls are made of. The illustrations are whimsical and certainly have plenty of kid appeal. This large format padded board book should be a staple in most toddler collections. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Kirkus Reviews
More than 15 traditional rhymes make up this gentle collection for the youngest listeners. Despite the venerable nature of the rhymes, there's plenty of modern appeal. Old Mother Hubbard drives her convertible to the market; a young mother pushes her child (Peter Piper) in the grocery store's cart in search of pickled peppers. Tradition takes a backseat to a nursery aesthetic. With her brood of children, the little old lady remains all smiles in her cozy shoe. "She gave them some broth / with plenty of bread. / Then kissed them all sweetly / and tucked them in bed." Endpapers feature the titular rhyme's spoon and plate holding hands as they race off the page. Sometimes animals play the lead. A mouse couple (Jack Sprat and his wife) devour their meal, and a canine Yankee Doodle rides his pony. Though there is a nod to diversity, by and large, the humans are white. Animals and people share the spreads; pastel shades keep the edges soft. An adequate introduction to whet babies' palates for more substantial nursery fare. (Board book. 0-3)
