Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leah Hanson
Readers young and old alike will delight in this classic Mother Goose rhyme from "Little Golden Books." With the familiar gold-edged binding and sturdy cardboard backing, parents opening the book to read to their little ones will feel young again, remembering their favorite "Little Golden Books." In this keepsake edition, industrious Jack builds a house that becomes the center of a romping rhyme. Cats chase rats; cows toss dogs; a tattered wanderer captures the heart of a lovely maid; farmers sow corn, and in the end, a happily married couple moves into their newly built house—built by Jack of course! The colorful illustrations and rhythmic rhyme never go out of style and are sure to be enjoyed again and again. This is an excellent read-aloud for very young children because of the musical quality of the words and the repetition in the text. Reviewer: Leah Hanson
