• 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…
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)
