Title: A Child 19s Treasury of Nursery Rhymes
Grade Level: Any age
Summary: This book is a collection of nursery rhymes. It has popular ones that most of us grew up with like 1CLittle Boy Blue 1D, but it also has many others that are from different countries. With every nursery rhyme in the book there is an illustration that shows the reader what the nursery rhyme is about.
Review: Parts of this were enjoyable, while others were not. I did not like that there were nursery rhymes from other cultures

This is the best collection I have found of all of those old nursery rhymes I used to know and that I love to sing and recite to my children. The illustrations aren't my favorite, but they're cute. I want my own copy of this so I can always have it to read to my kids.

Great baby gift; we have read this to all three of our girls multiple times. They memorized most of the rhymes by the time they were 3. Very good pre-reading for little sponges.
