What did you like about the book? Brightly colored illustrations featuring toddlers from a variety of ethnicities bring to life these classic nursery rhymes. One child wears glasses, one has an eye patch and another wears a medical helmet, bringing even more diversity to the series. In Hey Diddle Diddle, the children wear animal costumes to act out the rhyme. The back cover of each title includes the sheet music and lyrics to the songs. This is a nice addition to classic nursey song titles.
