I loved this book! I thought it was so interesting to see a different take on the common nursery rhymes. The pictures are also very interesting, because they build on each other. Each page contains rhymes prior to, and in the distance the one coming next can be seen as well.

This book of colors is filled with nursery rhymes as well. The illustrations and rhymes are very well put together. A book that kids will surely enjoy. ( )

This book teaches colors while also reviewing nursery rhymes. I think this book is a wonderful way to test what children already know. I would read this to children and introduce new nursery rhymes that they do not know yet. So, one week I could read the page on little boy blue and cover that nursery rhyme that week. The next week, I would do a different one. ( )
