Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 3.5

Format: Board book

What did you like about the book?  Thick board pages with surdy tabs and bright digital illustrations bring the classic nursery rhyme to life.  Little fingers can easily maneuver the slides to make the cow jump over the moon, the cat play the fiddle, and a  puppet show pop-up to delight the dog.  The pull out tab on the final spread shows the dish and the spoon running off and reveals the cow safely back home and asleep on a pile of hay.  The illustrations are full of color and details that will enchant little readers.  A nice addition to the series.

Anything you didn’t like about it? No

To whom would you recommend this book?  This is the perfect introduction to the Mother Goose rhyme for little ones.  The will enjoy manipulating the slides and tabs to make it even more fun.

Where would you shelve it?   Board books

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles?  No
