What did you like about the book?   A cast of ethnically diverse toddlers illustrate this collection of 23 nursery rhymes, primary songs and finger plays.  Included are familiar Mother Goose Rhymes as well as songs such as Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes, Incy Wincey Spider, The Wheels on the Bus, and Down By the Station.  In addition to the text of the rhymes and songs, movement and other instructions are included in smaller font.  The illustrations of the happy and diverse group of children make this a lovely addition to nursey song books.
