Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-A collection of 20 fingerplays or action rhymes told in rhythmic language. Each line or two is accompanied by a simple line-drawing icon to suggest the actions. The watercolor illustrations expand the story the rhyme tells. Adorable youngsters, some animal, some human, sit at the center of many of the pictures, either surrounded by the characters mentioned in the rhyme or in the middle of the action. For "The Teapot," a blond tot holds in his lap a blue-checked teapot that is almost as big as he is; he tries to pour a liquid into an equally huge cup inhabited by a small gray mouse delighted at being tickled by the shower. In others, the characters themselves inhabit the page. The soft, gentle cottage and garden surroundings of many of the double-page spreads suggest a simplicity and innocence that perfectly accompany the words. Chorao is clearly adept at choosing rhymes appropriate for babies. Out of the 20 collected here, only two use actions that involve standing or even whole body movement. Most of the action involves making circles on baby's hand or tapping baby's toes, head, or tummy. This book is similar to Marc Brown's Play Rhymes (Puffin, 1993) and Carol F. Ra's Trot, Trot to Boston (Lothrop, 1987; o.p.), but there are enough new selections here, as well as enough charm and delight, to make this a worthy addition to most collections.

Format: Hardcover
This would be a great baby shower gift! I love the old and new fingerplays of familiar nursery rhymes in this book, and my baby loves them too!

Format: Paperback
This book has a few very cute action songs, but it is very difficult to interpret the hand guides shown. Some description would go a long ways.
