Marc Brown's Playtime Rhymes: A Treasury for Families to Learn and Play Together by Marc Brown

Fingers ready?

Fingers set?

Fingers play!

It's time for Playtime Rhymes-a treasury of twenty favorite finger rhymes compiled and illustrated by the bestselling and beloved artist Marc Brown for the enjoyment of young and old.

From the clever Whoops! Johnny and funny Do Your Ears Hang Low? to the irrepressible Itsy-Bitsy Spider and rousing Wheels on the Bus, these are rhymes to say and sing aloud, each with pictorial instructions for the correlating finger movements.

An interactive experience at its very best, Playtime Rhymes will get little hands wiggling, jiggling, pointing, pounding, bending, stretching, and dancing as children animate the rhymes, pore over the vibrant pictures, and share the fun with family and friends.

Reviewed by Samantha Rivera for Readers' Favorite Five Little Pigs, The Itsy Bitsy Spider and The Wheels on the Bus are rhymes that nearly all of us have grown up with and they are rhymes that children tend to adore while they are younger. Playtime Rhymes by Marc Browne includes all of these rhymes and many more that the next generation of children will continue to love, remember, and pass on to their own children. This book was very cute and would definitely receive my recommendation for anyone with young children. It had several rhymes I remembered as well as some that I’d never heard before. I love that it has such colorful and fun images throughout and it’s full of happy and smiling children. It was also great that this book includes instructions for the motions that go along with each rhyme or song. That way, even if you don’t know the rhyme, you can still show your child how it goes.  For parents looking to teach their children some things from their own childhood, this is great. The motions will keep your child’s attention and so will the bright, colorful pictures on every page. Not only that, but the words are all printed large enough that your child will be able to learn to read by themselves. That way, you can read to them for a while and then you can help them learn to read to you. All round, I was very pleased with Playtime Rhymes and with Marc Browne’s style.
