My son has loved these books since he was an infant. He is now 15 months old and will sit still on my lap for over 30 minutes while I read the rhymes. Rosemary Wells' illustrations are cute when in Max or Nora, but when combined with Iona Opie's collection of rhymes, my son becomes absolutely spell-bound. It is not a novelty either, we have read them continuously since he was 2-3 months old and they still mesmerize him daily. They are a must have for any young child's library.
This book has wonderful pictures that children and parents will adore. We got hooked on the smaller hard paged books when our son was very little. This book has the poems from the small books plus MANY others. This book would make a wonderful gift to any child or expected parent.
