Ticktock: Time Nursery Rhymesby Terry Pierce, Cori Doerrfeld
Tick, tock, tick, tock. The clock is ticking. Have some timely fun as you read this collection of 20 nursery rhymes about telling time.
While the concept of compiling nursery rhymes by theme holds a lot of potential, these books have a bland, cookie-cutter feel. The format is identical, with the exception of the illustrations, which are different in style even though they were all created digitally. The overall design feels unpolished and the artwork, though bright, lacks emotion. The rhymes in each volume range from familiar to lesser known. Each one includes a note on the history of Mother Goose. The books all use The Random House Book of Mother Goose (1986), compiled and illustrated by Arnold Lobel, as a reference for editorial and formatting decisions. That book is once again in print and is a far better choice for nursery-rhyme collections.
