I do not like this book - or more accurately this story - which is too bad, because the illustrations are great. The concept is good: Old Mother Hubbard moves her family out of the shoe and tries to find a new home as they meet familiar characters from other nursery rhymes. However, it's too complicated and obtuse for its intended audience. A great idea, great illustrations.... it just falls short. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805064664, Hardcover)

An original take on some favorite nursery rhymes - this is one search for a new house that's bound to be more pleasure than trouble.

There was an old woman
who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children,
she didn't know what to do.
She gave them some broth
without any bread,
Then took them to live
in a new home instead.

Too messy, too woolly, too noisy, too small. Whether it's Humpty Dumpty's wall or Mother Hubbard's cupboard, the old woman (who once lived in a shoe) and her children (who once lived there, too) just can't seem to find a new home big enough for their growing needs. So where will they turn for a cozy night's rest? The perfect place is only a step away -- no moving van required!

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:04:36 -0400)

The old woman who lives in a shoe sets out to find a larger home for her many children, and gets mixed up in other nursery rhymes along the way.
