• Bank Street Children’s Book Committee – Building Blocks Selection for Children Five & Under
Playground songs and classroom songs, silly songs and sweet songs, wake–up songs and bedtime songs… Everyday, children, parents, friends, brothers, and sisters sing songs to one another.
Nina Crews brings her energetic style of illustration to this collection of thirty-four perennial favorites. From “Miss Mary Mack” (watching fireworks from her balcony) to “London Bridge” (built by a brother and sister in the living room) to “Skip to My Lou (in a rolling green park), the songs make this companion to the acclaimed The Neighborhood Mother Goose a treasure for every child in the neighborhood.
Kirkus Reviews – “A collection that begs to be sung in all neighborhoods—city stoops or country front-porch swings alike.” (Picture book. 3-6)
