I guess that Alissa doesn't think that a book should be sung because she made Mom stop singing and just read.
A variation of the classic folk song, with Watson's illustrations, and the sheet music included on the last page.

I've liked Watson's illustrations in the past, but the ones in this book aren't my favorite.

We enjoy watching Elizabeth Mitchell sing this (search on YouTube- it's great!), hence the search at the library for this book. It's set to a different tune, and I'd have to do a bit of research to find out what the original tune is.
