The Lovereading4Kids comment

The welcome return of a modern classic, this Treasury should be a gift for every newborn. Prize-winning illustrator Raymond Briggs’ wonderful illustrations capture the humour, pathos, poignancy and downright silliness of some of the best known nursery rhymes and riddles which have been passed down from generation to generation as well as some that are less familiar. Every verse has its own entertaining illustration, almost all in colour.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
