Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Teachers often bemoan the loss of interest in nursery rhymes because they have traditionally been one of the earliest listening and learning experiences for children. They prepare youngsters for the notions of pattern and rhyme. They are often repetitive, which is both comforting and instructive. They are usually silly, adding an element of humor that makes reading fun. Now some of the favorite nursery rhymes and songs have become small board books with holes. In this case, the holes are odd shapes showing each new animal that is added to the meadow. The last page has six holes showing frogs, crows, fish, squirrels, otters and bees. The left page includes a large number and the appropriate number of animals. The cartoon illustrations are busy but the animals (especially squirrels and otters) are not easily identifiable; there is a lot of detail but it is not geared to searching in "I Spy" style—lots of grass, leaves and water ripples. Part of the "Board Books with Holes" series. 2001, Child's Play, Ages 3 mo. to 3.
