Nursery rhymes are the ideal first literature for small children who respond to the rhythm and rhyme. But continue to share Mother Goose with older children. They will enjoy the imaginative word play and the fun situations of nursery rhyme characters. This is especially true when the rhymes are beautifully illustrated and feature a theme. Yum! Yum!! Delicious Nursery Rhymes by Joanne Fitzgerald is just such a book.
A cast of animals goes about their shopping and cooking tasks. As we read the lines and look at the pictures, the rhymes come into focus. The toddler and pre-kindergarten child will enjoy investigating the details in the softly colored full-page drawings that accompany each poem.
This book would be excellent for sharing one-on-one in the quiet time while Daddy fixes dinner. It could also be enjoyed after a meal during family time.
