Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The Nursery Play-Along Classic series offers two new board books: Jack and Jill by R.A. Herman, illus. by Olga and Aleksey Ivanov and Hickory Dickory Dock by Margaret Barritt, illus. by Jacqueline East. The text of each nursery rhyme runs along the top of the pages, while a narrative that fills in the blanks unspools along the bottom of the spreads (e.g., "Jack and Jill! It's time for your baths... Please fetch some water from the well," says their mother). Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Familiar rhymes are printed in bold text across the top of each page. A subtext that expands on the rhyme is placed below the illustrations. If you wondered why Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch water, this version will provide an explanation: Mother wanted the water to give them and their dog a bath. Kids might wonder why they just did not turn on the faucet, so caregivers might need to have an explanation handy. The inside cover shows caregivers the hand/body actions for sharing the rhyme with young children. The illustrations in soft pastel tones include many items to look at and could elicit further discussion. A delightful new packaging for familiar material. Other titles in "A Nursery Play-Along Classic" series include Pat-A-Cake, Hickory Dickory Dock and This Little Piggy Went to Market. 2006, Handprint Books, Ages 1 to 3.
