Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-This book takes 10 Mother Goose rhymes, expands them, sprinkles them with little lessons, then sets them to perky, folk-style tunes. For example, Humpty Dumpty pulls himself together after a kiss from his mom, Miss Muffet opens a bake shop with the spider, and the cow who jumped over the moon becomes an astronaut and makes insightful comments on caring for planet Earth. Hickory is a hang-gliding mouse who leaps off the clock to have an adventure and learn moderation, Mary takes her lamb on the road, three blind mice take a trip around an elephant, and Jack and Jill teach problem solving. This husband and wife team coauthored the rhyming songs that Hysom sings on an accompanying CD. Walker's brightly colored cartoons illustrate the antics. Good intentions occasionally muddle capriciousness and the messages loom large. Overall, though, this is a pleasant addition for libraries looking for more book and music combinations.-Jody McCoy, The Bush School, Seattle, WA

Review

An awesome resource for teachers of pre-K through 1st grade! --Elmira School, South Dakota

An entertaining addition to school and library collections. --Booklist

The text and lyrics consist of cleverly fractured Mother Goose rhymes that add up to a 10-song musical. The illustrations are adorable, and the musical accompaniment is sprightly and beautifully produced." --Lilla Weinberger, Readers' Books, Sonoma, CA --Children's Book Sense 76

Book and CD combos are becoming more and more popular and I think in part to one of the first books (if not the first) published by Tortuga Press, Jazz Fly (don t have it or know it? GO GET IT!!). I love well done book/cd combos since combining words and music is so great for our pre-readers (and our readers) and has children memorizing entire books because songs are easy to memorize. Wooleycat s is presented as a children s stage presentation of nursery rhymes, each song (and skit) beginning with the original nursery rhyme and then expanding it. For instance, here s the chorus to Humpty Dumpty Pull...yourself together, Humpty! (When you tumble, trip and fall.) Pull...yourself together Humpty! (When you re feeling beat.) Turn your sunny side up and scramble to your feet! I wish I could convey the toe tapping, finger snapping spirited award winning (this was originally released in 1992 as a CD only) music that goes with the text. A hit with all ages. --Sharon Levin --Book Corner

Format: Hardcover
My children received this book as a gift, and we read it before listening to the CD. I thought the illustrations were very good, and the stories were interesting, but once we played the CD--we were hooked. My girls, ages 6 and 4, loved looking at the book as they sang along, even though the 4-year old can't read yet.
The songs have a way of creeping into your sub-conscious, and several times, my husband laughed at me as he realized that I was humming "Mmh, berry pie" or "Hey, Wee Willie Winkie, yes we're sound asleep." I plan on buying this book to give as a birthday present to some of my daughter's friends. Well done!

I bought this book for my classroom of 1st and 2nd grade students with Autism. I love the songs! They are catchy, fun, and educational. Educational by way of social skills. It's a fun book and I recommend it to anyone who wants to sing along!

Format: Hardcover
I have been using this CD with my preschool classes for years. The songs are so catchy, even moms and teachers will find themselves singing along. The CD and book extend the original nursery rhyme with tons of kid-appeal! It also teaches positive character traits such us being a good friend, kindness, courage, and following your dreams. That is a lot to ask from a nursery rhyme book and CD but it does it with flying colors. Don't pass this one up. [...]
