Through child-friendly illustrations, Jane Dyer captures the innocence of childhood. This collection of nursery rhymes, poems, and lullabies is organized in a very clear manner…concepts, seasons, food, animals, nursery rhymes, playtime, and lullabies.

•Page 13 has an ABC poem about an Apple Pie. Try writing your own poem with a different topic…maybe even an object that isn’t food.
• Page 62—A Verse for the Night Before the Birthday…great poem to share the night before your child’s birthday as yo

A cute illustrated nursery rhyme book. Although we were familiar with most of these rhymes, there were a couple that were new to us, like eating peas with a knife. My son found that one particularly funny.

This is a good book to read to young children. It had a lot of interesting nursery rhymes. This would be good because it would teach the children about rhyming. The illustrations were done very well. I think that this would be a good book a good book to read to kindergarten or 1st grade children.
