I found this to be an interesting experience, as I didn't realize how old the books would be! I looked through a few of them and chose Jack Spratt, because it didn't seem like many classmates had chosen this one. My grandmother has "The Real Mother Goose" and I loved reading it when I was younger, so I knew I couldn't pick that one! :) The book displays a group of Mother Goose poems for children, most of them comprising of repeti

Jack Spratt and Other Rhymes is full of nursery rhymes- some easily remembered from childhood and some that aren't. The rhyming and rhythm of the poems makes engages the reader and aids in emergent literacy.

On the cover we see a lady sitting in a rocking chair surrounded by children clinging to her skirts as she reads to them. Perhaps she is Mother Goose, a mother, a nanny, or a teacher. She is whoever the reader imagines her to be. The p

Description: Jack Spratt and several other classic nursery rhymes are presented in their original format.

Genre: Mother Goose

Intended Audience: Preschool - 2nd Grade

Curriculum Connection: These poems can be used to teach a lesson on poetry. Using rhymes that students already know is beneficial because they have background and they know the text and language used. Once they have done several examples of analyzing poetry, they can move on to new poems that they have not yet read.

There was limited color use and lack of detail. Sometimes the picture didn’t match the rhyme beneath. For example, the rhyme about hot cross buns had a picture with a man holding a basket with an undistinguishable expression. Teachers could use this to highlight rhyme during a poetry unit but I would ...more

This book can be catergorized for the genre of Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes. The rhyme carried out throughout the whole book and the illustrations went along with new rhyme. I appreciated how old the book was but I doubt many of these rhymes can still be used today. The tone of the rhymes was more acceptable for a different age. These books are easy to read for a student and having rhyming patterns that could be useful for lessons in the classroom. Digitized books could be used to integrate the ...more
