From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-- Craig has chosen 54 nursery rhymes, mostly versions she remembers from her own childhood, which accounts for the distinctive British flavor. Many of the selections will be familiar to children, but a few, such as "Mademoiselle/ Went down to the well . . . ." may be brand new. All will both amuse and strengthen language development. The delightful watercolors add humor (Old King Cole calls for his bubble pipe!), variety, and a strong sense of movement, rhythm, and playfulness. The book's design is especially effective. Some rhymes are illustrated by a series of vignettes, while others are grouped on a double-page spread with one panoramic illustration serving them all. Some of the characters are dressed in clothing of the past, and others are more contemporary; they work together in a seamless way. Outstanding nursery collections abound, but libraries may well want to make room for one more. --Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL

From Publishers Weekly:

The 54 nursery rhymes collected here fairly crackle with energy in Craig's rousing treatment. Up to four poems cohabit a spread, and pages are jammed with panel illustrations. Take nothing for granted: some panels, for example, progress from right to left, others, vice versa--and all illustrations seem designed to suggest a maximum of activity. Castles, huts, the residential shoe of the legendary old woman and other homes are shown in cutaway, their occupants bustling about and their furnishings lovingly depicted, frequently in quasi-historical styles. If a certain logic guides the groupings (for example, three poems featuring mice share one festive setting), whimsy inspires the art. Old King Cole uses his pipe and his bowl to blow soap bubbles; a gremlin bedevils Jack and Jill after they fetch their pail of water. The abundance of detail infuses this collection with the inexhaustible atmosphere of a first-rate carnival. Ages 3-7.
