The thing I love about the illustrations so much is the color. She mixes and matches colors that you would never think match, but they do. The houses are fanciful and detailed. The home decorating is lovely and all of it just draws you right in to the book.
Reading nursery rhymes is so good for children to help learn language. They hear rhythms and rhyming schemes, learn new words, and discover what words mean through help of the illustrations. You can help them memorize the rhymes by reciting them to the children while you're giving them a bath:
Rub a dub, dub
Three men in a tub...
When you go to the store:
To market to market,
to buy a fat pig:
Home again, home again,
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king's horses
And all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again.
I hope you enjoy this book as much as our family has. It's a treasure!
