Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This beautifully illustrated book is full of color and extremely captivating. It offers a different approach to familiar nursery rhymes and converts them into upbeat and motivating verses for today's kids. The goal is to transcend the negative connotations found in the originals that might disturb young minds and instead, present the values and virtues of self-esteem, conflict resolution and a desire for lifelong learning. Most of the rhymes have maintained the rhythm of the originals although there are some that don't work all that well. The author presents the originals at the beginning of the book, allowing readers to make their own comparisons. 2001, Starseed Press, $8.95. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer: D. K. Jones

I LOVE this book! I buy it for all my friends and family when they are having a new baby. It's a great way to share childhood stories without the negative, cruel or sad actions that many traditional Mother Goose stories contain. It's a great start to positive learning for all children.
