The Lovereading4Kids comment

With over forty traditional nursery rhymes, personally chosen by the illustrator and laid out in colour-drenched double spreads, this is a beautiful collection of rhymes that has the makings of a classic. The pictures contain lots of detail to pore over, with strong decorative elements and a fine sense of colour and design. The perfect book to share, not only with a baby, but with the whole family.

Far more than just another nursery rhyme book, this sumptuous volume is one to pore over, cherish, and return to again and again. There is much to discover in the arresting pictures, and I anticipate this lovely book will become a classroom essential. - Bookseller
