From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K Fourteen fingerplays (some familiar, some not) in picture book format. Each rhyme is illustrated with a colorful picture, with just enough detail to show what's happening. Some of the illustrations are sequential and provide good counting practice. There is also a small boxed drawing next to each line of the rhyme that shows the hand motions to use with the fingerplay. The pictures have the warm colors and friendly coziness which distinguish Brown's work, and they are sure to appeal to the very young audience at which he aims. This book will be useful in many ways, especially as a tool to encourage parents to share fingerplays with their children. Librarians will also find it helpful for toddler story hours. There are many beautifully illustrated Mother Goose picture books, but quality fingerplay books are rare. An attractive book that most libraries will want.
