I don't have young children anymore, but I do teach Gifted and Talented students from 1st through 5th grade. I ordered this book, because we study innovations in 5th grade, so I though this book would fit right in. The combination of popular Nursery Rhymes with comic book style illustrations was a hit with my students. They now understand what the term "innovation" means, as well as what a "parody" is. My students were reciting the classic nursery rhymes as I read the book out-loud and laughing at the whimsical illustrations. Some of their favorites were "Three Little Kittens," "Rock-a-bye Baby," "Pop Goes the Weasel," and "Humpty Dumpty," but they laughed especially hard when we read "Jack be Nimble." My next activity will be to have the students create their own innovations on a popular fairy tale of their choice. I can't wait to see what my highly creative students come up with.
