OLD NURSERY RHYMES
From "How many days has my baby to play?" with which it begins, to "The Man in the Moon," with which it ends, this is a treasury of verses that small children quickly take to their hearts when they hear them, learning to chant the rhymes almost as soon as they learn to speak.
For all the verses, Joan Walsh Anglund, the beloved author-artist of A Friend Is Someone Who Likes You and other celebrated titles, has made joyous full-color pictures that catch the very essence of childhood and that make each page a special delight. This is a perfect book with which to begin a child's own library as well as a source of unending pleasure for parents and grown-up friends.
