1) No awards

2) Age: 3-7 years

3) Summary: This book contains about 40 pages of all different nursery rhymes. Small illustrations correlate with the words on each page. Some of these rhymes include "Three Blind Mice," "Appley Dapply," and "Hitty Pitty."

4) Review: The illustrations were cute, however, I felt that the book was very outdated. There were a lot of words that children have not ever heard from before so they may not enjoy it as much as they would a more modern collection of nursery rhym

1. Awards: No awards to date.
2. Grade Level: Pre-K – 2nd grade
3. Summary: With 42 different rhymes, this anthology is a combination of the Appley Dapply collections, the Cecily Parsley collection, the Squirrel Nutkin riddles, and The Tailor of Gloucester collection of verses, rhymes, and jingles. Though there are a couple of classic nursery rhymes, such as Three Blind Mice, many are unique and not found in other nursery rhyme anthologies. For example. Old Mr. Pricklepin, Arthur O’Bower, and The

I have found a new respect for Beatrix Potter, who seems to be currently in vogue, what with a movie, a mystery series featuring her as the sleuth, and a biography emerging in recent years. Part of my appreciation is surely tied to my rediscovery of all things child-related, but the greater part is learning that not only did Miss Potter write her own charming stories and illustrate them with meticulous precision and adorable whimsy, but she did formidable work as an amateur botanist/mycologist, ...more

A fun collection of nursery rhymes by Beatrix Potter, which is sure to stir fun out of the classroom. The rhymes, and some of the words are a bit odd or outdated, but it makes for a more fun and interesting experience for the children, because the words sound funny. This would be a great book to have children practice phonemic awareness skills without really realizing they are due to the nature of the words.

These are another set of tales from my childhood, I can remember reading them and stil

Nursery rhymes are always fun and accompanied by illustrations that I know and love from Beatrix Potter I am definitely a fan. This is the perfect size for sitting and reading with my girls where everyone can see and enjoy it together. We sat and read several until attention waned and then came back another day for more. I think it took us three if not four times to read through the entire book. I am positive we'll return to it again and again.
This book has many little nursery rhymes. This helps build phonemic awareness and they are short little poems that are not too long for the youngest of children.

As Dear Hubby said, "These songs are quite strange, but I like them." The lyrics are B. Potter's but there is a lot of creativity added to make this CD.

Absolutely adorable marriage of her precious watercolors and drawings and old nursery rhymes. Since I'll be touring her Hill Top Farm in the Spring, I'm immersing myself in all things Potter.
Beatrix Potter was a magnificent children's story teller and the books passed down through generations are still loved today
