What a lovely book and perfect gift for a new parent. There are 30 favorite nursery rhymes in this collection. Each is accompanied by an appealing illustration. The rhythmic quality of the poems is perfect for young listeners and the reader will enjoy spending time with old favorites.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this collection. I enjoyed it. All opinions are my own.
Mary Had a Little Lamb
Mary had a little lamb, / It’s fleece was white as snow; / And everywhere that Mary went / The lamb was sure to go. / He followed her to school one day / Which was against the rule; / It made the children laugh and play, / To see a lamb at school. / And so the teacher turned him out, / But still he lingered near; / And waited patiently about / Till Mary did appear.
The Owl and the Pussy-cat
The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea / In a beautiful pea-green boat, / They took some honey, and plenty of money, / Wrapped up in a five-pound note. / The Owl looked up to the stars above, / And sang to a small guitar, / “O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love, / What a beautiful Pussy you are, / You are! What a beautiful Pussy you are!”
