A noteworthy review of Favorite Children's Songs from Children's Bookwatch on November 1, 2009
Every child is familiar with the songs that mothers sing to them as infants and toddlers. Now The Child’s World has published a splendidly illustrated series of brightly colored, 16-page, hardcover picture books based on eight of the most popular and well-known of these childhood tunes. Enhanced with a reinforced library binding for an extended shelf life, a section specifically describing movements and gestures, and featuring simple ‘child friendly’ text written at a first grade level with a preschool through second grade interest level, the individual titles comprising this outstanding and highly recommended series for family, school, and community library collections includes Grey Squirrel; I’m a Little Teapot; The Itsy Bitsy Spider; Knock at the Door; Pat-a-Cake, Pat-a-Cake; Round and Round the Garden; The Wheels on the Bus; and Where is Thumbkin?. Although each title is available individually, the highest recommendation is for acquisition of the complete set.
Author, Illustrator: Laura Ferraro Close
Laura Ferraro Close has been drawing ever since she can remember. She has also always had a love for piglets, so this story was fun for her to illustrate. Laura lives outside of Boston, Massachusetts with her husband, two teenage sons, and a sweet dog--but no piglets!
