This brought a lot of laughter to my eight (almost nine) yr. old daughter. Well worth the money even though she zoomed through it in less than an hour....(Think lots of pictures, not lots of words. :) )

What does it really mean when we continue reciting outdated nursery rhymes of babies falling out of trees, eating curds and whey, pockets full of posies, and three male scoundrels in a tub? Why do we continue doing it when the poems are irrelevant, and truth be told, actually have horrid or inappropriate meanings? If you don't like to follow tradition for tradition's sake, buy Bruce Lansky's book instead, if not for your own children, then for your family or friends children. It's a delightful romp through our favorite childhood nursery rhymes using the same rhythmic cadence but with an entirely modernized twist on the wording. The poems are age-appropriate and the illustrations are beautifully drawn. Both of my boys loved this book and enjoyed reading it time and again when they were little.
