This is one of my two and a half year old's favorite books. The poems are short and sweet, and great kid's fare. The illustrations are wonderful and add a lot to the poem's imagery. It's exciting when your toddler asks you to read a book over and over again... especially one that you enjoy too!

I have seen other books illustrated by Jill McElmurry and had high hopes for this one. However, several of the illustrations are downright scary, with a bizarre skeleton-like image and a creepy Halloween witch girl with a very ugly ogre-type mask. I prefer wholesome, uplifting images for my little ones, so this one is going away.
