Format: Paperback
The fingerplays in Marc Browns collection are easy and well illustrated in this book. Traditional rhymes help children to feel confident in trying the fingerplays. The illustrations are also charming if you just feel like listening to the rhymes. They cause children to ask questions, think about the possible meaning of the rhymes and challenge their own imaginations.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By audrey TOP 500 REVIEWER on January 16, 2004
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book contains 14 finger rhymes, some familiar (Two Blackbirds, Eensy Weensy Spider) and some not (Fish Story, There Was a Little Turtle). Nice b&w drawings accompany the rhymes, though the finger movements themselves are in very small boxes beside the lyrics, which can make them difficult to read.

Format: Paperback
The pictures and words showing how to make the signs matching the song or poem are too small. The pictures are also too dull, faded gray. I was disappointed in the graphics.

Format: Paperback
The illustratons are frustratingly small. Alot of the finger movements were the same (1, then 2, then 3).
