Mies van Hout - Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
Beloved nursery rhymes and lullabies with gentle, inviting illustrations. With CD.
The creator of Happy and Friends illustrates some of childhood's most beloved songs from "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" to "The Teddy Bear's Picnic," and from "I'm a Little Teapot" to "The Wheels on the Bus" in this book and CD set.
Also included: "Old Macdonald Had a Farm," "Swan Swam Over the Sea," "If You're Happy and You Know It," "Five Little Ducks," "My Hat, It Has Three Corners," "It's Raining, It's Pouring," "Head and Shoulders," and "Down by the Station."
"The sprightly illustrations feature two children, a large white mouse and, in some, an animate toy monkey acting out the songs with ebullience. In the teapot spread, the children are having a tea party in an upside-down table that is their pretend boat, with the toy monkey holding a teacup and the mouse perched on the prow with a telescope and a cup hanging from its tail. The pink-eared mouse wearing a blue dress appears in every scene. All of the images brim with amusing details (bugs, ants, Pinocchio). The female singers (one adult, one girl) on the CD have a leisurely lilt that is sure to have kids and adults singing along as they turn the pages."
