This is a collection of nursery rhymes. It contains all sorts of rhymes from Jack and Jill to rhymes that come from all over the world. The great thing about his collection is that it specifies where the rhyme originated from.

This was an epic tomb of nursery rhymes from all languages and cultures around the world, with beautiful, detailed illustrations from a variety of artists, each one paired perfectly with it's rhyme. What an incredibly well put together book. The quality of this was fantastic, and it doesn't hurt that it's title is a Led Zeppelin song. Some of the rhymes were very familiar English nursery rhymes, others were more obscure, from China, Latin America, and Africa, but all were accompanied by an appropriate, detailed illustration in a variety of media.
This is a great book for anyone with kids. I'm going to buy 5 copies on Amazon so I don't have to shop for baby showers anymore.
