Best book in the whole wide world, and we love it.❤️💙💜💖💝 (Danyah is 5years old)
“This charming retelling of the classic nursery rhyme retains the rhyming text and incorporates children from a variety of cultures. The simplistic illustrations by Joelle Dreidemy also work very effectively to support the flow of the story. A set of puzzles at the end of the book adds an interactive element that deepens the children's learning and makes this a splendid example of the Usborne First Reading series.”
