Product Description


This is a soon to be loved classic! The moment it arrived in the mail I sat down and read it cover to cover and laughed. I felt like a kid who had walked into a candy store when I opened the pages. The artist’s expression of the stories are very engaging, both in its beauty and in the detailed artwork. As a part time teacher I will be sharing this with not just my students, but also with the rest of the young ones in my family. My only hesitation is these pages are so precious that I wouldn’t want any fingerprints on them. As a Muslim, I love that my religion and the cultures I’ve been raised in are represented in lighthearted rhymes. For preschool teachers, nannies, new parents and anyone interested in introducing classical English literature this book needs to go into your toolbox. Happy reading!
