Little One Books Review and $25 GC Giveaway (CLOSED)



Little One Books (founded by Barney Cohen and Joan McCoy) offers a wide selection of quality books, music, and video for children from birth through age five. Their website is easy to navigate and the products they have are categorized by age groups. Books, music and video play an important role in a child's early life. At Little One Books, their staff hand pick and review the best children's books. I was given the opportunity to work with them and have chosen "My Very First Mother Goose" to review.






"My Very First Mother Goose" was edited by Iona A. Opie and illustrated by Rosemary Wells. This  hardcover book features adorable animal illustrations combined with classic nursery rhymes that children love to read. I am a fan of nursery rhymes and the songs are fun for Brandon to hear. Brandon enjoys the book very much and is learning to repeat the phrases I read. It is also his bedtime story book. The bunny characters reminded him of the children's television show, Max and Ruby (which is also based on the bestselling books by Rosemary Wells). Finally, what's funny is that Brandon was hoping to find the big yellow bus in the book. "The Wheels on the Bus go 'round and 'round is his favorite song. We have that in another book.

Here's more about "My Very First Mother Goose":

To a small child, words are magical. And the most magical of all are the beloved, venerable words of Mother Goose. Now folklorist Iona Opie has gathered more than sixty treasured rhymes in their most perfect, honest form. From "Hey Diddle, Diddle" and "Pat-a-Cake" to "Little Jack Horner" and "Pussycat, Pussycat," these are familiar verses that have been passed from parent to child for generations; these are the rhymes that are every child's birthright.

With watercolors by Rosemary Wells that may prove equally enduring, this book captures the simple joy and the sly humor that are the essence of Mother Goose. Parents and children will find themselves exploring this volume together, savoring delightful details and funny surprises on every page.
