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 big circles, all showing the old man on the very last page. Another hole is added to each page as a new character enters the song. Each page also includes a number fact as characters are added (1+1=2, 1 + 3 + 2 = 6), with the hole revealing one of the numbers in the series. The cartoon illustrations are colorful and busy with lots of appeal to the newest young book lovers. Part of the "Board Books with Holes" series. 2001, Child's Play, Ages 3 mo. to 3.
