Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Part of "The Mother Goose" collection, the selections in this small board book are taken from the larger book by the compiler and illustrator. The book is durable and filled with bright, cheery pictures for each of the eight rhymes. Among the better known selections are the title rhyme, My Black Hen, Davy Dumpling, Tom Tom the Piper's Son and Jack Horner. In the latter, a little mouse is pulling a plum out of a pie while the cook and cat nap in the background. Once you have seen one, you will want the three other titles in the series (Wee Willie Winkie, Little Boy Blue, and Pussycat Pussycat). 2001 (orig. 1996), Candlewick, $4.99. Ages 1 up.
