I grew up reading this and watching the movie. The quality of the movie was bad, but the songs stuck in your head. I still sing "A Alligators all around" to my kids. It was a wonderful way to remember the alphabet, counting, the months on the calendar, and learning lessons. I would highly recommend to anyone teaching their kids the basics. And it's all around fun too.

It's actually been decades for me with this book. I can sing almost all of it, and my favorite song/story is "Chicken Soup with Rice."

Played Rosie in my second grade play! I will always love this book! Plus, Rosie is a sassy little thing... What's not to love?

Loved sharing some favorite (Maurice Sendak) songs from my youth with Caius and Sophia! "One was Johnny" (I'll start to count backwards, and when I am through, if this house isn't empty, I'll eat all of you!), "Pierre" (The moral of Pierre is, CARE!), "Chicken Soup with Rice" (In November's gusty gale I will flop my flippy tail and spout hot soup-I'll be a whale! Spouting once, spouting twice, spouting chicken soup with rice.), and "Alligators All Around" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3DRUJ.. ...more

Meh. The text, plus music, for a stage adaptation of some of Sendak's work. The linking narrativ eis thin, and the content of the Nutshell Library books (One Was Johnny, Alligators All Around, Chicken Soup with Rice, and Pierre), divorced from their original illustrations, lose much of their charm. there is new Sendak art to accompany the script, but the power of the originlas is muted.

Okay, so this is really a rating for the TV special, which I remember from my childhood with a fondness matched only by my love for "The Monster at the End of This Book." Pierre getting eaten by the lion remains one of those things that inspires a visceral sort of creepiness just under the skin, while "Alligators All Around" is pure whimsical fun.

It's not so much the book I ended up loving so much as the record that accompanied it. My mom let me check it out from the library until I wore it out and then she finally taped it for me so I could sing "Eating Chicken Soup With Rice" and "One Was Johnny" and "Pierre".

To this day I still know all the words.

Recommends it for: childrden, musical lovers, and anyone young at heart
I simply adore Really Rosie. It was an ingeral part of why I learned to read as a child. I didn't want to have to wait for my parents to read it to me or for someone to put in the tape so I put forth more effort to read. I love this book and the audio taoe-I still rtemember word for word to the is very day lol

I love this collection - Carol King sings wonderful versions of Maurice Sendek poems! I need this on DVD since my VHS tape does me little good with no player in the house anymore. I'm Really Rosie, One was Johnnie, Chicken Soup with Rice, Alligators All Around. What joyous songs! Sendek Art! Amazing!

Saw this as a play, first. Then I saw the animated version. I long Sendak, and the way he presents common thoughts of children through his books.

Yes, the Nutshell kids. No childhood is complete without them. And be sure to hear Carol King sing them.

Combine the stories from "The Nutshell Library" with music by Carole King and you have sheer magic.

This is a cartoon musical that Carole King and Sendak did together.
It's freakin awesome.
