Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennifer Greene
Children love singing along to their favorite songs, and with this book, remembering the words is made easy! Here, Wood compiles twelve children's songs complete with lyrics and illustration. The songs range from the well-known, including favorites like "I'm a Little Teapot" and "The Farmer in the Dell," to the more obscure, such as "Mr. Sun." While parents and caregivers may appreciate having these titles all in one durable source, the book does not contain any sheet music to accompany the lyrics. Parents must rely on their own knowledge of the melody and may be out of luck if they do not recognize the song. Furthermore, while the illustrations are generically cute and well-placed with regard to the lyrics as a unit, the pictures lack the detail or uniqueness needed to bring the common-domain text to another level, ultimately questioning the value of this book over any other also offering lyrics to children's songs. Likewise, while educators may wish the book to facilitate early reading as children can easily follow along with words to songs they likely already know, the lyrics offer too many words to make this book an effective tool in reading education. However, parents and young children may enjoy singing together while flipping through this basic board book. Reviewer: Jennifer Greene
Kirkus Reviews
From the perennial classics, such as the titular "Old MacDonald Had a Farm," to lesser-known traditional tunes, like "Mr. Sun," this is a passable song anthology illustrated in bubble-gum colors. The lyrics of each song are reproduced on single- or double-page spreads, while friendly animals and pink-cheeked people demonstrate the action. Wood's soft and hazy cartoons are lively and tooth-achingly cute. With all the multitude of traditional songs available, it is troublesome that the compilers chose and didn't update the antiquated "Farmer in the Dell" line: "The farmer takes a wife." No directions for singing the additional verses of "Bingo" or movements for some of the action songs, such as "I'm a Little Teapot," are included in these pages. With no CD or music notation, this title is only for parents or others familiar with these traditional tunes. Since there are plenty of lovely and more complete anthologies of children's songs available, this is strictly an additional purchase. (Board book. 6 mos.-3)
