Publisher Description

This award winning series has been specifically designed for babies. A great introduction to books through well-known nursery rhymes and interactive text. Singing songs and rhymes is the perfect way to bond with your baby and share quality time. It also aids language development by introducing them to the natural sounds and patterns of speech. Combining these with actions also stimulates the brain and helps muscle development.

Review

"The action takes place within the context of pretend play, with a child and a toy Humpty on a "wall" of pillows; all the king's horses take the form of hobby horses, and the king himself and his "men" have clearly been raiding the dress-up chest. Together with Hop a Little, Jump a Little!, Pat-a-Cake, and Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat, this is a splendid, slightly larger-than-usual contribution that is sure to see many repeated readings."

Review Text

Taking her visual cue from Helen Oxenbury's sublime Clap Hands (1987) and its Big Board Books companions, Kubler sets the familiar nursery rhyme in a jolly day-care setting peopled with a multiethnic cast of toddlers (one even wears a colorful eyepatch, presumably for wandering eye). The action takes place within the context of pretend play, with a child and a toy Humpty on a "wall" of pillows; all the king's horses take the form of hobby horses, and the king himself and his "men" have clearly been raiding the dress-up chest. Together with Hop a Little, Jump a Little! (ISBN: 978-1-84643-341-2), Pat-a-Cake (ISBN: 978-1-84643-338-2) and Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat (ISBN: 978-1-84643-340-5), this is a splendid, slightly larger-than-usual contribution that is sure to see many repeated readings. Musical notations on the back encourage sung renditions for extra fun.
