This treasury of nursery rhymes from Axel Scheffler is really sweet. It makes a great first collection, with a nice range of well-loved rhymes, from Baa, Baa, Black Sheep to Twinkle Twinkle.
Woven throughout is a sweet story about a mother goose and her children, who sing the songs as they go about their day. They also provide occasional commentary on the rhymes, pointing out some of their quirks and stranger lines, with observations that will make little readers giggle.
Each rhyme is accompanied by Scheffler's illustrations, making it a familiar visual treat for little fans of Scheffler's other works.
Thank you Macmillan for sending us a copy to review.
