Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A trio of board books The Lady with the Alligator Purse; Miss Mary Mack and Skip to My Lou plus their words set to music make up the contents of Mary Ann Hoberman and Nadine Bernard Westcott's Sing-Along Songs: Three Books and Tape Set. A sturdy case with a plastic handle makes it easy to tote, and a Velcro closure ensures the books' easy accessibility for encore performances. (Mar.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Three previously issued board books, Miss Mary Mack (adapted by Mary Ann Hoberman), Skip to My Lou and The Lady with the Alligator Purse, all illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott, have been packaged together with a tape. Those who remember clapping out the rhythms for this rhyme will enjoy this new adaptation in board book form of Miss Mary Mack. The playful illustrations extend the story until the little girl makes a pet of the pachyderm. All the neighborhood children play happily ever after in the elephant-shaped pool created when he falls from the sky. Hoberman never lets the rhythm fall and Westcott keeps up her end with humorous details. Skip to My Lou is a familiar old tune that kids will enjoy. The Lady with the Alligator Purse is a silly story but when the doctor and the nurse fail to make the patient well, our lady's recommendation for pizza seems to bring better results. The kids can read the books and then join in signing the songs. 2001, Little Brown, $14.95. Ages 3 mo. to 5. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot and Susie Wilde
